Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey announced Thursday that he is working with the state’s U.S. congressional delegation to push for legislation that would remove Arizona from the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

“The Ninth Circuit is by far the most overturned and overburdened court in the country, with a 77 percent reversal rate. In 2010, it had three times as many reversals as most circuits had cases before the Supreme Court,” Gov. Ducey said in a news release.
