a sandbox squabble, for a price. The kids don't do the squabbling. They pay lawyers to do it for them.

"OK, kids, time to stop squabbling in the sandbox and go home."I could say the same for our judicial system up until now. Slam them all day if you'd like (referring to the judge), but all the patent troll rulings up to this point has precipitated this state of affairs.

Judge Posner is indeed a brilliant and highly respected jurist and his views on our problematic patent system will undoubtedly resonate and help the cause of reform. A damage case can be tossed, once and for all, if a party is conclusively shown not to be able to prove damages, as happened here. Where patents involve essentially trivial rights (as often is the case with software patents especially), judges do not like to be used as tools to be manipulated in a broader commercial fight between litigants. That said, Judge Posner can hardly be accused of being a judge who doesn't respect property rights or IP rights generally and his voice will carry far more impact than most. It will be necessary to have respected voices in the legal community say, "enough is enough" many times over before Congress will listen. This act may not be enough but it is a great push in the right direction.
This opinion is both extraordinary and extremely significant. Richard Posner is probably the most prolific legal intellectual not on the supreme court. Most telling of all is this statistic: "As of 2000, Judge Posner was the most often cited legal scholar of all time with 7,981 citations, nearly 50 percent more than anyone else" . He retains that position in 2012. William M. Landes Richard A. Legal Stud. 325 (1989).

I would add he is old enough that the appointment would have relatively limited value. In an increasingly politicized court, it might be better for a president to appoint someone with limited intellectual weight who will be a reliable (liberal or conservative) vote on the supreme court for a long time than a brilliant scholar who might step down in a few years, at least from a political power standpoint.
in deep fiscal trouble. We have a huge public debt, dangerously neglected infrastructure, a greatly overextended system of criminal punishment, a seeming inability to come to grips with grave environmental problems such as global warming, a very costly but inadequate educational system, unsound immigration policies, an embarrassing obesity epidemic, an excessively costly health care system, a possible rise in structural unemployment, fiscal crises in state and local governments, a screwed up tax system, a dysfunctional patent system, and growing economic inequality that may Nike Sb Janoski Max Premium soon create serious social tensions. He gets right to the heart of the biggest challenge facing the US right now. Obviously cheap prices is a valid goal for an economy to work well but without good paying jobs then it barely aids the economy as a whole. I'm serious. Ever since Bork, the trend has been towards finding nominees who have left the smallest possible paper trail of potentially damning legal opinions. Elena Kagan. The majority of sitting justices are/were not brilliant jurists or legal scholars for this very reason.
And most lawyers do not discriminate among potential clients by maturity level, they discriminate by net worth. They are happy to become instruments of Nike Janoski Max Girls
