Calling All Wingnuts
By MIKE STARK
The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals is widely believed to be the most conservative of the circuits. Yesterday, 2 judges from that court - progressives that regularly find themselves disagreeing with the majority decisions issued by that bench - came to speak at the law school.
The panel was moderated by the founder of the American Constitutional Society, Peter Rubin and featured Judges Blain Michael and Diana Gribbon Motz.
Rubin did a great job asking questions a lot of us had on our minds… How do they work within such an ideological bench? What do they see their role as being in terms of regular dissenters?
