Joan Barron has this interesting profile of the Tenth Circuit’s newest judge, Gregory Phillips, in the Casper Star-Tribune.
The money quote is Judge Phillips’ remark “Give me a stack of cases, a stack of notebooks and a few color marks and a big Coke Zero and I’m happy.”
As an appellate law nerd, I couldn’t agree more . . . well, except for the Coke Zero part. (Someone needs to introduce Judge Phillips to the superior properties of Dr. Pepper, and Coca-Cola from Mexico).
