The most outspoken and combative judge on the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals was eager for yet another battle. Judge Stephen Reinhardt of Los Angeles, one of the court's most liberal jurists, was tangling this time with conservative U.S. Supreme Court Justice William H. Rehnquist, who had just insulted 9th Circuit liberals at a judicial conference in Seattle.

A federal appeals court judge who had been asked to disqualify himself from hearing the case involving California's same-sex marriage ban declined to withdraw Thursday, saying he could rule impartially. U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Stephen Reinhardt was asked by supporters of Proposition 8 to recuse himself from the panel that Monday will hear an appeal of a decision that the voter initiative defining marriage as between a man and a woman violates the Constitution. Reinhardt is married to Ramona Ripston, longtime head of the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California.

Judge Stephen Reinhardt of Los Angeles, the liberal leader of the U.S. appeals court for the western states, is doing his part to keep the Supreme Court busy this year. Last week, the issue was racial bias, as the Justice Department challenged a Reinhardt opinion that said a clear "statistical disparity in the race of those prosecuted" suggests racial discrimination may be at work.

A federal appeals court judge said Tuesday that the verdict in the O.J. Simpson murder trial was "astonishing," and he decried the "bizarre and unseemly" rush of participants in the case to sell books about their experiences. Judge Stephen Reinhardt of Los Angeles was particularly critical of the lucrative deals made by deputy district attorneys Marcia Clark and Christopher A. Darden, the lead prosecutors, who garnered $4.2 million and $1.3 million, respectively, for their as-told-to books.

In an unusually provocative speech, a veteran federal appellate judge told a luncheon gathering in Los Angeles Friday that Jews have been dramatically under-represented on the U.S. Supreme Court for the last generation. Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said that considering the disproportionate number of Jews who were successful lawyers and legal scholars, the question is "why aren't there two, three or more Jews on the court today?"

Federal Appellate Judge Stephen Reinhardt attacked the U.S. Supreme Court for the second time in a month Saturday, declaring that the court has shown it no longer cares about the needs and concerns of minorities and consequently has sowed disrespect for the law. "The message the new Supreme Court has delivered to the minority communities is clear: We no longer care. . . . Look elsewhere for help," Reinhardt said in a graduation speech at Golden Gate University Law School in San Francisco.

Re "Reinhardt and the Supreme Court: This Time, It's Personal," Opinion, Dec. 15: David M. O'Brien pointed a finger at U.S. Circuit Judge Stephen Reinhardt and called him the "L"-word. Was there anything of substance in the article? Not that I could find. All I found were statements criticizing Reinhardt for things like championing "the rights of death-row inmates, immigrants, minorities, women and the poor." Is O'Brien saying that these types of individuals do not have rights? (Hopefully not.)

Federal Appellate Judge Stephen Reinhardt said Sunday that if pending efforts to freeze the growth of the nation's federal courts are successful, it could deprive millions of people of access to justice. "Clearly the end result of a freeze would be to limit drastically Congress' ability to expand individual rights," Reinhardt said in a speech accepting Loyola University Law School's St. Thomas More medallion.
