OOOH, Stop the Press!!!

From the Humongously Big Surprise Department...

US District Martin Feldman, who struck down the six-month ban on deep-water drilling, has investments in:
  • Transocean Ltd, the owner of the Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded and sank;
  • Ocean Energy
  • Prospect Energy
  • Peabody Energy
  • Parker Drilling, and.... wait for it...
  • yup, Halliburton!

This is according to a story listing some of the details in Feldman's financial disclosure statement.

Another big surprise: Feldman was named to the bench by Reagan.

Yet another surprise: he ruled in favor of the oil industry.

Oh, and he hangs with his BFF, Nino Scalia.
