I'll be meeting him pretty soon. He's going to be assigned to the Fort Lauderdale Courthouse.

I have a saying about new judges, "it's all fun and games until they say motion denied."  :)

Wildman, if somehow word got to the judge that you too were educated “on the hill,” surely homeboy would cut you some slack, wouldn’t he?  ;D

Like I said, it's all fun and games until the Judge says, "motion denied."

With that said, I congratulate the Rattler on his appointment to the federal judiciary.

Smith is also a member of the Federalist Society, a nationwide group of conservative lawyers that seeks to interpret the law as written and plays a large role in Republican Supreme Court nominations.

^^^That's true WM, but I pray that he is one who hasn't left and never looked/reached back and/or have compassion for those where he came from. Follow the law, but in a manner that is fair for all concerned.

Could be that Judge Smith joined the Federalist Society to increase his chances of becoming a federal judge. On the other hand, maybe he's a big fan of Justice Clarence Thomas.  :shrug:

 :(^^^bruthas, I actually became aware that dude was a member of Federalist Society after I posted my initial congrats yesterday on this brutha’s confirmation. I wanted to feel good good that a Rattler had been confirmed to the federal bench, but had some trepidation about this dude Trump nominating ANY black person to the bench.

And when I discovered that dude was a member of the FS.......well, then I didn’t feel “quite” as good about the brutha’s confirmation.  :(

Look, I will TRY to have an open mind about this brutha’s temperament on the bench. But as WM stated earlier^^^, members of the FS are considered “conservative” judges who believe that judges should “interpret the law as written.”

The US Constitution was adopted in 1787. Given the status of black people and ALL OTHER non-white people, white women, and non-affluent white men at the time, is it really SOUND judicial philosophy for a BLACK MAN to interpret the constitution as adopted 232 YEARS AGO?!?!?!  :o

Lord, have mercy.   :no:

Federalist Society Members would likely respond that that is the purpose for Amendments to the Constitution.  :)
