"Judge Martin Feldman Releases Investment Report, Raising More Questions"
"U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman owned stock in ExxonMobil, which has two oil exploration projects in the Gulf of Mexico that have been delayed by the deepwater drilling moratorium, but sold his shares the same day he ruled on the issue. Last week Feldman overturned the deepwater drilling moratorium that the Obama administration put in place after the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion, and ignited a fire storm among critics, who realized that he had many investments in energy stocks. To quell his critics, Feldman volunteered to release a report of his 2009 stock holdings, but the report only seems to raise more questions about whether he should have recused himself."Rebecca Mowbray reports for the New Orleans Times-Picayune June 28, 2010.
