U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman of Louisiana has blocked the six month moratorium on offshore drilling that was imposed by President Obama following the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It was argued that the moratorium was arbitrarily imposed after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which is now known as the largest spill in U.S. history, and still going.
Judge Feldman was recently appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for a seven year term, effective May 19, 2010. The U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court is a "secret court." Quid pro quo??
