Moore before Judiciary Committee on June 28

Professor Kimberly Ann Moore of George Mason University appeared on June 28, 2006 at a confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) was the only member present, and after expressing support for Moore, he invited her to explain for the record how her experience has equipped her to serve as an appellate judge.

In response, Moore said she learned her love of technology and was introduced to patent law at MIT, where she earned her Bachelors and Masters degrees in electrical engineering. She further listed her work for the Navy as an engineer, her patent law studies at Georgetown Law School, her trial work at Kirkland & Ellis, her service as a clerk to former Chief Judge Glenn L. Archer of the Federal Circuit, and her work in academia. The latter, Moore stressed, was not ivory tower work, but practical research on litigation issues.
