"Interesting, no? I had two reporters now privately tell me that Judge Stewart seemed grumpy toward Novell and more friendly to SCO. Hmm. I'll reserve judgment until I get to read the transcript, which is on order, and when I share it with you, we may get more of a reading, but to tell you the truth, I do listen who two separate reports tell me the same thing.

"And it is true that as it stands, this will be the third judge Novell will have to plead its case before who was either appointed to his position by Orrin Hatch or connected to him in some clear way. Judge Kimball was appointed by Orrin Hatch, Judge Stewart used to work for him, although his official bio leaves that detail out, I notice (more on Stewart here in this PDF), and Judge McConnell, who wrote the appellate decision, was also strongly supported by Orrin Hatch for his position as judge to what was a Utah vacancy, as you can see by his statement when he introduced his nomination at the confirmation hearing in 2002.
