Posted on 02/08/2013 9:19:25 AM PST by Olog-hai
President Barack Obama nominated Thursday an openly gay attorney to serve on the U.S. appeals court for patent cases after a previous gay nominee for that court stalled.
Todd Hughes, a lawyer in the Department of Justices civil division, was nominated for the Federal U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He would be the first openly gay circuit judge in the country if confirmed.
The Federal Circuit hears patent appeals from around the country, including high stakes cases like Apple Incs smartphone battle against Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. Its docket also includes trademark cases and some claims against the federal government.

Obama is trying to put a judge on the court based on his homosexuality! Shoot it down. Stall it. Do whatever it takes.
I’m sure his robes will be FABULOUS!.............
Gay-Bama will be looking for a payback from his queer appointees.
Don’t we have more important battles to fight?
Is that “Patent Leather?”
It seems like, with Obama, anything that might have been an appointment hurdle or disqualifier in the past, is now a trump card qualifier. Socialist? Communist? Third or fourth sexual type or preference? Racist? You go to the head of the line.
Quite frankly, I’d rather have a competent gay judge with integrity than an incompetent corrupt straight judge. Both are immoral and not to be condoned but one can do a lot more damage than the other.
Its no secret that the Obama administration is full of socialists, communists, Alinskyites, globalists, multiculturalists, environmentalists, and sexual radicals. But look at this brag list from the Gay and Lesbian Leadership Institute to see just how many GLBT radicals hold influential positions. They wouldnt be on this list unless they brought their sexual revolutionary viewpoints onto the job each day. Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings has a lot of company.
From GLLIs website: Help President Obama lead the nation. The Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute is leading a community-wide effort to identify strong LGBT candidates to serve in the Obama administration. The Presidential Appointments Project serves as the talent bank for openly LGBT professionals ... While Barack Obama lays out a broad agenda to move the country forward, his staff is actually undertaking the hard work of implementation. Appointed officials have the power to set or influence the policies of the many federal departments and administrative agencies that make up the executive branch of government.... [The Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute is organizing the project, along with multiple partner organizations. Project partners include Federal GLOBE, GLAD, Human Rights Campaign, Lambda Legal, National Center for Transgender Equality, National Stonewall Democrats, Out & Equal, NBJC, NGLCC, NOGLSTP, Pride at Work, SAGE, Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, The Council for Global Equality, The Gay & Lesbian Task Force.]

If only the judge was competent - or had any kind of clue about the subject matter he will be deciding. The CAFC is essentially the Supreme Court of patent law - all appeals from all district courts go directly to the CAFC instead of the Circuit that includes the particular district court. Judges appointed to the CAFC normally have some experience with patent law, whether as a patent lawyer or substantial other experience with intellectual property law prior to being on this court.
I don’t see any such qualification here. Can’t speak to “integrity” - but think there are plenty of competent people with integrity that could have been appointed.
Some see "gay" here and go barking moonbat crazy without any consideration of the persons' work ethic and job performance. These same people have no answers as to just what they'd have us do with homosexuals.
