Here is a report on recent news and commentary related to the Federal Circuit and its cases. Today’s report highlights:
- an article from the Washington Post about Judge Newman’s suspension; and
- a similar article from the New York Times discussing “[t]he order suspending Judge Newman for one year.”
Rachel Weiner wrote an article for the Washington Post about Judge Newman’s suspension from the Federal Circuit. As explained by Weiner, the “order from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit begins with praise.” Weiner further discusses, however, how the order is “not an award or a retirement announcement; it’s a notice that Newman has been suspended from the court for a year for ‘serious misconduct.'” For more information about Judge Newman’s suspension, see our recent post.
Michael Levenson wrote similar article for the New York Times discussing “[t]he order suspending Judge Newman for one year.” Levenson explains how the order “followed an unusually bitter and public dispute over her cognitive state and her ability to continue to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.”
