My critics/opponents badmouth my work experience. I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $102,188-$132,845/year. I worked for IRS as a Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $85,935-$97,395/year. I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Judges with backgrounds as prosecutors or corporate lawyers, who represent the majority of federal district court jurists, are significantly more likely to rule in favor of employers in workplace disputes, according to a new study of diversity on the bench. Emory University law professor Joanna Shepherd conducted the study, which she described as the first published research about whether judges from certain professional backgrounds are more likely to rule against workers. Shepherd concluded that judges appointed by former President Barack Obama with corporate backgrounds are 36% less likely to rule on behalf of employees. Obama judges who have a background as prosecutors are 50% less likely to decide in favor of employees in those cases compared with non-prosecutors, she reported. Her work received some financial support from the group Demand Justice, which advocates for progressive judicial nominees. The new findings come as advocates push for greater professional diversity among President Biden’s presumptive judicial nominees. Former prosecutors and corporate lawyers make up nearly 7 in 10 judges on the federal district courts, which consider lawsuits over employment, immigration, the environment and other topics.
“Our results suggest that expanding the professional diversity of the federal judiciary will do more than just create a judiciary that is more representative of the legal profession,” Shepherd said. “It can affect actual case outcomes and, as a result, the development of legal precedent.”)
