Federal judge that lifts ban on off-shore drilling has ties to oil industry.

According to financial reports obtained by Judicial Watch, Martin L. C. Feldman, the federal judge that ruled today that the Interior Department had acted "arbitrarily" when it issued a six-month moratorium on all pending, current or approved drilling plans for new deepwater wells in the Gulf of Mexico and Pacific Ocean and agreed to lift the ban has investments in Transocean, the company that was involved in the oil spill.  Conflict of interest?  You, betcha!
