David has some good posts on his blog today. The 11th Circuit is apparently closed due to inclement weather. But here in Miami there was a swearing in ceremony un front of the Courthouse and CJ Fred Moreno urged the new reps to light a fire under the senate judiciary committee and get Kathy Williams confirmed. Very nice.
DOM also has good coverage on the lawyer for Jared Loughner- Judy Clarke- who counts as her stable of former clients such good eggs as he Unabomber, Susan Smith and all around fun guy Zacarias Moussaoui. (A big hat tip to DOM for doing the leg work and getting the links, etc. Plus, he was probably at the swearing in ceremony).
Query: is there a Federal Judge in Arizona who is not conflicted out on this case? Our view- nope.
Happy Birthday to Pat Benetar (hit me with your best shot), Jim Croce and Donald Fagen.
