At one point, Mr. Hughes was asked which jurists he felt set the standard for judicial temperament.  As one example, Mr. Hughes cited Senior Judge Bryson as exemplifying an extremely fair and well-prepared judge.

Mr. Hughes commented that he has no familiarity with intellectual property matters, which make up roughly thirty percent of the Federal Circuit’s docket.  He noted that he does have experience in the remaining portion of the Federal Circuit’s subject matter.
