Except in the case of the appellate court being the CAFC and the subject
matter being NOT patents and NOT something claimed against the United
States government you retard... especially regarding utterly silly
opinion produced by a District Court Judge sitting by designation.

"The Federal Circuit is unique among the thirteen Circuit Courts of
Appeals. It has nationwide jurisdiction in a variety of subject areas,
including international trade, government contracts, patents,

"Rader: Yes. The job of an appellate Judge is to review a record for
reversible error; to correct errors. In order to correct errors based on
a record you need to understand the challenges of making a record, you
need to understand the challenges of administering a trial and narrowing
issues. As an example, I see very often in appellate practice where the
losing case will seize on some minor issue and try and elevate that to
an issue of great importance before the Court of Appeals when in fact

District Judges themselves have seen the Federal Circuit in action and
have become more acquainted with us and have gained more confidence in
the work we do. I think it has worked in reverse as well. The Federal
Circuit Judges have seen the District Judges and their marvelous
preparation to work with us and have gained more confidence in them and
their work. So it has been a wonderful institution strengthening
exercise for both the District Courts and the Federal Circuit."
