Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
From the other thread:
Edit: If you look at the dude's disclosure, he had stated positions in 125 different companies across every industry in the country.This doesn't really make much sense if you think about it. What do we know? Back in 2008, this guy had a few thousand dollars in a handful of oil company stocks. You're assuming that he still owns those stocks, even though the very next line in your article indicates he may have sold some or all of them. His decision on this issue will have a minuscule effect on the overall value of those stocks. Unless you think he's throwing away his reputation and career for what will amount to (at best) a few hundred dollars, it doesn't make much sense.

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Agreed with others on this broad this is a nothing kind of story. All people who invested have some ties to Oil this I agree with.
Look at all of the apologists coming out to defend this judge.
There is a clear conflict of interest. His ruling on the moratorium should be voided and reviewed by a different judge who doesn't have a history with the oil companies.

A judge makes on this court would make around $170,000 a year. However, according to you, his decision was swayed by "less than $15,000" invested in an oil company? So, in what will be a multi-billion dollar event, you claim the judge was influenced in a major way in his decision making for the value of around what he makes in one month? (Assuming he even still owns the stock)
