Does Judge Reinhardt Have a Case--or a Clue?


Over at Bench Memos, Ed Whelan points out that Judge Reinhardt's order refusing to disqualify himself was devoid of content.  He says he can explain "in due course" why the facts justify his refusal to recuse himself.  But oddly provided NO SUCH FACTS, in his decision denying recusal.
