Description

Evans examined two sitting federal judges, James H. Payne and Terrence Boyle, to determine their independence.Both were nominated by President Bush for higher court seats. Both have conflicts of interest on their bench: they each sat on cases that involved companies in which they owned stock. Judge Payne withdrew his nomination after the stories about him ran.
