Morning Docket

Morning Docket: 09.05.06

kimberly ann moore.jpg* It’s Tuesday, September 5th. Do you know where your Supreme Court justices are? (Probably not — they’re quite the jet setters.) [Washington Post]
* Better late than never: today the Senate will hold an up-or-down vote on the nomination to the Federal Circuit of Kimberly Ann Moore (at right). Professor Moore, a superstar of intellectual property law, should have been confirmed eons ago. [How Appealing]
* The number of terrorism cases brought by the Department of Justice is falling. Another reason for the Democrats to stop holding up the nomination of Ken Wainstein, nominated to serve as Assistant Attorney General for National Security. (The DOJ’s new National Security Division can’t start operations until Wainstein is confirmed.) [New York Times]
* Judge Dean Pregerson (C.D. Cal.) — little brother son of Judge Harry Pregerson, one of the Ninth Circuit’s leading liberals — just sentenced singer Ronald Isley to three years in federal prison for tax evasion. [chronic magazine]
