The Bowman case? I'd be surprised if he wins, as Clarence Thomas will ramrod the conclusion on that-despite the fact he should have recused himself, also being a former Chief Counsel for Monsanto. How is it "Conflict of Interest" is no longer a consideration when appointees are confirmed, anymore. All "We The People" EVER wanted was Fair & Equal treatment under the Law.
