They're Here. Get Used to It.

America now has an openly gay appeals court justice. His name is Todd Hughes, and he now sits on the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit-- a specialized federal appeals court that sits in Washington D.C. handling cases in a variety of subject areas, including international trade, government contracts, patents, trademarks, certain money claims against the United States government, federal personnel, veterans' benefits, and public safety officers' benefits claims. Appeals to the court come from all federal district courts, the United States Court of Federal Claims, the United States Court of International Trade, and the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
As you should have been before,  you should be conscious in your advocacy that appellate benches look more and more like America, and that appellate court's staffs absolutely do.
