The news regarding judges on the Federal Circuit continues. President Obama has nominated Judge Evan Wallach to the seat that Judge Gajarsa will be vacating when he assumes senior status. Judge Wallach is currently a judge on the Court of International Trade, a position he has held since 1995. He is a veteran of the Vietnam War and served as Judge Advocate General in the Army and National Guard.
Judge Wallach does not appear to have significant experience in intellectual property matters, but is considered an expert in the law of war.
