So they keep making bad judgements and there is no consequence. Incidentally, if 19 overturns is 79% of the cases then that means they only heard 19/0.79 = 24 cases in 2010 and another court had to redo their work in 19 of these cases. The quote above also says that most circuit courts have less than half this many cases - that would be less than 10 cases per year. Doesn't seem like we're getting our money's worth from the circuit court judges. Maybe just put them on a part-time wage with no insurance. I'm still hoping the govt. shuts down ... and they don't get back pay. I'm not sure much of the non-govt. working class will notice.
It probably means that that's how many cases each of those courts had
for which the Supreme Court chose to hear an appeal.
Those lower courts probably had many more cases that were not appealed,
or the higher court declined to hear an appeal.
