ABA says Mike Wallace "not qualified"



If there weren't already enough reasons to take a jaundiced view of the ABA's record on judicial nominations, the association's shabby handling of the Michael Wallace nomination (5th Circuit) would be reason enough. (Disclosure: I've known this particular nominee for upwards of 25 years; based on that acquaintance the WSJ editorialists seem to me if anything to have understated their case.) More: Todd Zywicki, TheHill.com, PowerLine, John Kalinger (pointing out that various ABA worthies have in the past attached the "not qualified" label to such later stars of the federal appellate judiciary as Frank Easterbrook, Richard Posner, John Noonan, and Stephen Williams).
