Paul Charlton and Stephen Richer in Steptoe’s Phoenix office authored an article titled "Splitting the Ninth Circuit" for the July/August 2017 issue of the Arizona Attorney, a publication of the State Bar of Arizona. In their article, the authors suggest splitting the ninth circuit. They argue that the Ninth Circuit’s unprecedented and unparalleled size minimize Arizona’s voice in the federal judicial process and also jeopardizes justice.
