Although it may be infringing upon his bodily sovereignty

    Upon doing some research I do think he should resign or leave his membership from the club. Only one black member has been admitted, and he lives in GA and is a Vanderbilt University trustee. Up until 1990 blacks and Jews couldn't become members. According to the law I think he should resign.

    I hope female judges aren't caught working out at Curves.

    I'm the only 'No' vote. D'oh!

    He's retiring from the bench at the end of this year. He's been a club member since 1978. He tried and sponsored a black man for membership in the past. He had written to the club about member diversity in the past. He seems like a good egg.

    The rotten eggs will die out over time and the club will be opened to everyone (that can afford the dues) in the near future. Hopefully the retired judge will get to see this in his lifetime.

    Just out of curiosity...what is the concern? Does his membership impact his role as a federal judge?
