Federal Circuit Chief Judge Interview and News

A forthcoming Judges Series entry will be about Chief Judge Randall Rader of the Federal Circuit.  One of the items collected for this entry warrants individual highlighting, though.  Earlier this year, IPWatchdog posted an in-depth interview with Chief Judge Rader, linked here.

This week, Rader was in the news, due to a pending recusal request in a human gene patenting case.  The request, which cites Rader's comments at a biotechnology industry event, was unusual, as the panel has not yet been announced.
