District Courts Are Bound by the Law of Their Circuits “No Matter How Egregiously in Error They May Feel Their Own Circuit to Be” (Good Quote)

Jackson v. Evans, 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 28893 (C.D. Cal. Mar. 1, 2013):

Footnote 1. See Bell v. Hill, 190 F.3d 1089, 1093 (9th Cir. 1999) (district courts must follow controlling circuit court precedent); Hasbrouck v. Texaco, Inc., 663 F.2d 950 (9th Cir. 1961) (district courts are bound by the law of their own circuit. "They are not to resolve splits between circuits no matter how egregiously in error they may fee their own circuit to be.")
