Just in case you were wondering

Periodically, I get spam e-mails from LegalMetric, and I noticed among the other nuggets of claimed insight on the web page the following: "Medical defendants, including doctors, have a 50% greater chance of losing before Democratic appointed judges."

That is a very odd way of looking at things, even if it is true. Unless I'm mistaken, back when I started practice, every single state court judge in Virginia was appointed by Democrats, if you agree that the General Assembly picks the judges (but for the occasional recess appointment by the Governor).
