    9th en banc or SCOTUS would probably depend on how likely they think it is that Obama will be re-elected.

    If they think he's gonna be re-elected, they'll skip inviting another affirmance of the trial court by the "uber-liberal" 9th Circuit, and instead send it to SCOTUS now before BHO can appoint another justice.

    If, on the other hand, they think Romney (or Jeb or Mitch) will win the WH, they might as well appeal to the 9th Circuit to keep it alive till they can get another conservative appointed to the Supremes.
