Judge who nixed drilling ban has oil investments



Published: Wed, June 23, 2010 @ 10:12 a.m.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Louisiana judge who struck down the Obama administration’s six-month ban on deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico has reported extensive investments in the oil and gas industry, according to financial disclosure reports.

He’s also a new member of a secret national security court.

U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman, a 1983 appointee of President Ronald Reagan, reported owning less than $15,000 in stock in 2008 in Transocean Ltd., the company that owned the sunken Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.

No, but it still makes me sick. The ruling should be appealed on that basis alone. This person (I hesitate to call him any title that denotes respect) should have had the decency and common sense to recuse himself.
