Proof There Is An 11th Circuit Vacancy Crisis!

 
With all due respect, and given the opinion you can see he is a very well-qualified and capable jurist, but now we're pulling in judges from the United States Court of International Trade?

Of course I kid, and it's an important opinion too:
A deluge has swept through U.S. bankruptcy courts of late. Consumer debt buyers—armed with hundreds of delinquent accounts purchased from creditors—are filing proofs of claim on debts deemed unenforceable under state statutes of limitations. This appeal considers whether a proof of claim to collect a stale debt in Chapter 13 bankruptcy violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA” or “Act”). 15 U.S.C. §§ 1692−1692p (2006).

We answer this question affirmatively.
Can we get a few more judges affirmed already?

  1. Was a solid opinion by Judge Goldberg.

    His colleague Jane Restani is also a frequent visiting judge on the Eleventh Circuit.

    Other perennial visitors include Alarcon (9th Cir.) and Ripple (7th Cir.).
