Judge David Bryan Sentelle Esq.
July 2009: '"It cannot be gainsaid that citizens have a right to drive upon the public streets of the District of Columbia or any other city absent a constitutionally sound reason for limiting their access," Chief Judge David B. Sentelle wrote for a three-judge panel. "It is apparent that appellants' constitutional rights are violated."'http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/07/10/AR2009071002750.html
June 2006: Did the Yellowstone trip affect the court's decision in the global warming case? Ginsburg and Sentelle are both strong-minded intellectual conservatives, and it is possible, perhaps likely, that they would have made the same decision if they had stayed home. The Code of Conduct for federal judges does not prohibit attending such seminars -- as long as participation does not 'cast reasonable doubt on the capacity to decide impartially issues that may come before them.' But if appearances count, then Ginsburg and Sentelle may have fallen short. And Sentelle did violate the law by not listing on his financial disclosure forms the value of the Yellowstone trip.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/06/02/AR2006060201404.html
