Judge Moore

Congratulations to George Mason Law Professor Kimberly Moore on becoming Judge Kimberly Moore of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Thanks to a 92-0 vote from the Senate, she will be the youngest appeals court judge in the country. In case you are wondering what the hell that court is, here is a short description...
The Federal Circuit is unique among the thirteen Circuit Courts of Appeals. It has nationwide jurisdiction in a variety of subject areas, including international trade, government contracts, patents, trademarks, certain money claims against the United States government, federal personnel, and veterans' benefits. Appeals to the court come from all federal district courts, the United States Court of Federal Claims, the United States Court of International Trade, and the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
The Federal Circuit is fairly young as far as courts go. It's the same age as me.

Thanks to How Appealing for the heads up.
