Theagene v. Gonzales (9th Cir. - June 15, 2005)

The number of things that I know nothing about could fill a small country. For example, I did not know that the Court of International Trade was an Article III tribunal, and hence its judges eligible to sit on the Ninth Circuit by designation, as Judge Pogue does in this case. Once I found this out, I also learned that Judge Pogue is a fellow graduate of Dartmouth, which made me feel a special kinship with him. At least until I learned that he went to that third-rate law school commonly known as Yale. Then he lost all my respect.
