He was Chief Judge on a remanded case from SCOTUS. He didn't really seem to be aware of the facts of the case. Actually, all three judges seemed ignorant of the facts. They ruled on cold hearsay testimony, while the facts of the case proved otherwise. He seriously needs a new line of work. It almost seems like they were annoyed at the fact that this person was able to get the case to SCOTUS and win unanimously, after the 11th Circuit found that the case was moot.
