Cobell -- Ouch!!!!
The D.C. Circuit removed Judge Lamberth from the Cobell case in its latest opinion. Apparently, an opinion from the judge that included some inflammatory language about the federal government's continuing reluctance to cooperate was the final straw for the court of appeals. It appears the more irritated you can get a federal judge about your behavior, the better off you are.
