Hello federation Friends,
Many of you have heard by now that U.s. Supreme Court Justice David Souter
plans to leave the bench some time in June.  Below is a perspective
candidate I gott off CNN you might find of some interest.  Chris foster

* Judge David Tatel, DC Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals
Born 1942. Blind due to degenerative eye disease when he was young man, but
has never made much of it. If nominated and confirmed, he would become the
first openly disabled justice. A former civil rights attorney. Age
considered a real political factor, but a well-regarded intellectual, with
strong progressive credentials.
