Circuit courts were reassigned to SCOTUS judges on Friday, with conservative-leaning judges overseeing major battlefield states where President Donald Trump is embroiled in legal battles for electoral fraud.
On Friday, the Supreme Court announced the latest allocation of judges, made in accordance with Title 28, United States Code, section 42, following the recent death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett.
Under the new order, at least two people appointed by President Donald Trump will be in charge of circuit courts in the still heavily contested battlefield states, with Judge Brett Kavanaugh responsible for the Sixth Circuit, where Michigan is located. , and Judge Barrett presiding over the seventh. Circuit, where Wisconsin is located.
Other Tory judges will also oversee two other swing districts, with Judge Clarence Thomas presiding over the Eleventh Circuit, which encompasses Georgia, and Judge Samuel Alito covering Pennsylvania in the Third District.
Read the command below:
It is ordered that the following attribution be made to the Chief Justice and
the associate judges of this Court among the circuits, in accordance with the title
28, United States Code, Section 42, and that such attribution be recorded
record, effective November 20, 2020.
For the District of Columbia Circuit, John G. Roberts, Jr., Chief Justice,
For the first circuit, Stephen Breyer, assistant judge,
For the second circuit, Sonia Sotomayor, associate judge,
For the third circuit, Samuel A. Alito, Jr., associate judge,
For the Fourth Circuit, John G. Roberts, Jr., Chief Justice,

For the ninth circuit, Elena Kagan, associate judge,
For the tenth circuit, Neil M. Gorsuch, assistant judge,
For the eleventh circuit, Clarence Thomas, associate judge,

It should be noted that many circuit court assignments have remained largely unchanged, with the most notable change occurring in the Sixth Circuit, where left-wing judge Sonia Sotomayor was replaced by Kavanaugh. See the October 2018 list of circuit court assignments.
SCOTUSBlog.com describes the duties of District Judges, which include weighing in on “emergency requests” and referring certain questions to SCOTUS:
A circuit judge is primarily responsible for emergency requests (for example, a request to block an execution or allow it to proceed) from the geographical area covered by his circuit, as well as more mundane matters – for example, a request to extend the time limit for filing a request for review. However, judges can and often do refer important emergency requests to full court, as Judge Neil Gorsuch did earlier this month with a North Dakota Native American request to prevent the state from d ” enforce a law requiring voters to present identification that includes a residential street address.
It remains to be seen whether circuit courts will have to weigh in on the 2020 presidential election, or whether the state’s contested results will be sent back to SCOTUS.
