According to the WSJ Law Blog, which reads the San Francisco Daily Journal, GMU lawprof Kimberly Moore is on her way to the Federal Circuit bench. The Law Blog reports that California IP lawyers are disappointed that local federal judge Ron Whyte didn’t get the appointment; it doesn’t report that a lot of IP faculty are (or should be) pleased. Nothing against Judge Whyte, who is an experienced federal and state court judge. But Professor Moore is an especially accomplished, thoughtful, and constructive critic of the patent system. Congrats!
