Judge owned stock in drilling firm directly affected by moratorium he overturned from Yahoo News.

U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman, who overturned an offshore-drilling moratorium imposed by the Obama administration in the wake of the Gulf-spill crisis, owned stock in a drilling corporation that was, in the company's own words, "suffer[ing]" because of the ban.

C'mon man.  You got to be kidding me.

Should be interesting to watch.  Does this crooked ban that's endangering American security and safety get overturned?  Does the judge get any sort of penalty for his conflict of interest in this case?  Wouldn't bet in favor of either one in today's corrupt America.  Instead, this just sounds like business as usual.

Surely the name of the judge should have raised a few eyebrows during his confirmation?
