Judge Giles Sutherland Rich’s Confirmation Proceedings

I was poking around on Westlaw the other day and ran across materials related to Judge Giles Sutherland Rich’s confirmation proceedings when he was appointed to the Court of Customs and Patent Appeals by President Eisenhower in 1956.  These materials are from witnesses, rather than testimony from Giles Rich himself.  I’m not sure if he was not required to testify or if my search method was flawed; but, I did not locate any actual testimony by Judge Rich in regard to his nomination.  The witnesses’ testimony is available here: [Link].

To this day, the Federal Circuit still discusses opinions that Judge Rich wrote for the court, as this sound bite from the oral argument of Alps South, LLC v. Ohio Willow Wood Co. illustrates: [Listen].
