By Tom Brody VINE VOICE on November 12, 2012
Format: Perfect Paperback
THE FEDERAL CIRCUIT - A JUDICIAL INNOVATION by Steven Flanders is a 290-page book printed on light yellowish paper. The book will be of interest to every patent attorney and agent in America, as well as to those interested in judicial reform. This book contains an easy to understand account of judicial reform, which compares the successful formation of the Federal Circuit with the disastrous and short-lived U.S. COURT OF COMMERCE. Once these concrete examples are understood, interested readers will have enough basic concepts under the belt to enable further excursions into the history of, for example, the EVARTS ACT.

The book contains a dozen or so non-glossy photographs, and these include: (1) Ceremony in 1982 where the U.S. president signs into law the Federal Courts Improvement Act; (2) Attorney General Griffith Bell and Dan Meador (Bell and Meador crafted the Federal Circuit); (3) Judges in U.S. Court of Claims; (4) Howard Markey (got JD from Loyola in a 1-year program, then got LLM at John Marshall School of Law), chief judge of Federal Circuit from 1982-1991; (5) Jimmy Carter giving a speech in 1979, about judicial reform; (7) Judge Nils Boe (former governor of South Dakota) of United States Customs Court; (8) Federal Circuit as it existed in 1982, showing 12 judges; (9) Three photos of Pauline Newman, smiling (pages 77, 94, 121); (10) P.J. Federico, Giles Rich, and others, carrying a log; (11) Judge Giles Rich, seated at a round table crowded with other guest, receiving a gift of an "Edison" lamp; or just posing (pages 83, 87, 153); (12) Charles Gholz and others; and (13) Photos of various courthouse buildings (pages 98-116).
