I agree with Sam's comments. All too often sole practitioners and other skilled lawyers who don't come from "corporate firms" with backgrounds as employment-plaintiff lawyers are not always taken seriously or even considered.


Scary - judges who want to become advocates.


I sure hope that Judge Moore's comment about the hoped-for diversity in backgrounds, as quoted in this article, was more complete in its full context - because there is a glaring omission in the list, as quoted. That's practicing lawyers who don't come from "corporate firms." In fact, I am sure that in every federal District in the nation I could find skilled and experienced lawyers who would be glad to be nominated, to go through the confirmation process, and accept the current level of pay; I would look among the labor union lawyers, criminal defense lawyers, employment-plaintiff lawyers, etc. Voila, nearly all the problems identified in this article disappear.
