The chief judge of a federal appeals court has no special powers. He is truly a first among equals, establishing an agenda for the court only through the consent of his colleagues. The chief judge does chair the circuit's governing council, reviews complaints about judicial misconduct throughout the circuit and sits on the national Judicial Conference, which oversees federal court administration.

He is not the sort of judge one would expect to be chief of the largest federal appeals court in the nation: a diminutive elf of a man whose judgments tend to be pronounced with a sly grin and a twinkle in the eye, whose outside hours are more often spent spading his garden or fussing over law clerks' offspring than sharing cocktails with the judicial elite. His hair, even in formal court photographs, has always had a way of finding its own path.

Emphasizing the importance of the will of the voters, a federal appeals court ruled Monday that the top vote-getter in last fall's election is entitled to take his seat on the Grossmont Union High School District board. Reversing a San Diego federal judge's ruling and rejecting the district's bid to block candidate Thomas Davies, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a promise Davies had made never to seek a job or an office with the district was no bar to his election.
