CSM calls Fourth Circuit "[a] court of civility and controversial conservatism"
The Christian Science Monitor has this profile on the influence of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and notes one of my favorite things about oral argument there, which is that the judges come down off the bench and shake your hand and say something friendly when the argument is over (then go back up and here the next case.) It doesn't sound like much of a thing, but I like it. Maybe Howard Bashman knows whether this is done in any of the other courts of appeals.
