What might have done in Judge Karen Williams in the last go round

John Fund wrote here: "One federal judge was nixed by a powerful senator over a judicial opinion that would have been attacked by feminists."

Some commenters thought this reference might be to Judge Williams' opinion in the Ocheltree panel decision - the en banc court upheld the liability verdict but reversed on punitive damages. Others thought it might be Judge Edith Jones' concurring opinion in the McCorvey case.

I suspect, notwithstanding the NY Times article focusing on Ocheltree, that Mr. Fund's reference is to the McCorvey case.
