Another Federal Circuit Nominee

by Jonathan H. Adler

Yesterday President Obama nominated Edward DuMont, a partner at the D.C. law firm of Wilmer Hale, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  FWIW, Eugene Volokh thinks this is a good pick:

Of the nominees that President Obama is likely to appoint, I can’t think of any whom I would respect and trust more than I respect and trust Ed; and I suspect that most of them would be to the left (even well to the left) of Ed. I think that others who share my general political leanings should likewise be delighted with the appointment of a lawyer of Ed’s intellect, experience, judiciousness, and moderateness.
