Chatigny To The Second Circuit? No, No, No

A representative of the ABA is making the telephone rounds of the state chatting people up about whether United States District Court Judge Robert Chatigny has a temperament suitable for a promotion to the United States Court of Appeals. The answer is obvious: Hell no.

I'll have more to say on this later, but I ran across a blog post elsewhere that describes the judge's shocking memory lapse when it suited his political principles, and his role as bully against a lawyer serving his client's interests.

Rumor earlier in the year had it the judge was souring on the bench. Why, then, is he seeking a promotion?

    You got that right. This man is not only incompetent, he is a thug: Doriss v. New Haven, et al, 05-668 RNC, dismissed in clear violation of Conley v. Gibson, 1957.
    The courts do not work in Amerika, simpley; state or federal. I encourage readers to watch these videos and see if they do not apply to Corrupticut, the unKonstitution State:

    If you are going to write about this "later" you had better do it soon. Because the Hartford Courant knows better but readers won't judging from its coverage.
    If there are other lawyers who have dissenting or interesting observations of any kind about this judge's qualities, they should offer their views to the AP and the Courant now, even if it is necessary to do so for anonymous attribution.
    There is a paltry amount of information about him, none to make a true profile at all. The press is rehashing the Ross incident because it is one of the only bits of inforation about him it has ever covered.
    Nominations to two important circuits were made on the same day - the ninth and the second. It is an embarassment to read them. They contain substantial sections on Liu for the ninth, and little more than the press release for Chatigny, including when and where he was born, and where he went to school. That's because the authors of these articles look to academics, lawyers and the press here and find nothing.
    Before he is confirmed, which could be in the next couple of weeks, the public should be better informed.
