Someone should have paid more attention in his evidence class

Matthew Petersen withdraws from further consideration for a federal district judgeship in wake of questioning by Senator Kennedy (R-LA) showing that he didn't know what the Daubert standard was and didn't know what a motion in limine is, among other rather remarkable gaps in his knowledge for someone aspiring to be a trial judge!  (Here's the full questioning by Senator Kennedy, who is an experienced lawyer and also, like Mr. Petersen, a graduate of the University of Virginia Law School.)
