They are clearly a bottleneck in our legal system, so it's not unreasonable to suggest there should perhaps be 540 SCOTUS Justices in 60 chambers, hearing cases at 60 times the current rate.
Then why not do away with the Supreme Court and have the circuits be the final arbiters of the Constitution. To put it another way, who is to decide if one Supreme Court group differs with another in its interpretation of the Constitution? Would we then need a Supreme Supreme Court?
