U.S. District Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp of Miami, whose court rulings and off-the-cuff comments drew sharp criticism from civil rights advocates, lost his bid Thursday to move up to a federal appeals court in Atlanta. The Senate Judiciary Committee, dividing strictly along party lines, rejected Ryskamp's nomination, in the first defeat for one of President Bush's judicial nominees. The panel's eight Democrats voted against Ryskamp; the six Republicans voted for him.

Latino groups joined other civil rights organizations Friday in opposing the nomination of a controversial Miami judge who told Senate aides that "Cubans always show up two hours late" for weddings. U.S. District Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp, President Bush's nominee to a federal appeals court in Atlanta, already faced strong opposition because of a series of rulings that overturned civil rights verdicts.

A controversial federal judge surprised a Senate committee Tuesday by asserting that young blacks who were attacked by police dogs may have benefited from the experience. Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp, President Bush's nominee to move up to a federal appeals court, said the mauling of several young black men by police attack dogs may have provided "a negative reinforcement" against their committing future crimes.

U.S. District Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp of Miami is a tall, gangly man--hard-working, intensely religious and somewhat humorless. His friends say he is decent and fair-minded, but a "total political innocent." When put on the spot, he has a tendency, they admit, to say the wrong thing. His penchant for the ill-advised comment may have cost him confirmation to the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.

A Miami police officer found guilty of racketeering and drug charges has been sentenced to 35 years in prison and fined $250,000. U.S. District Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp said Thursday that Osvaldo Coello, 28, will have to serve at least 11 years before being eligible for parole. Prosecutors said Coello belonged to a band of 15 corrupt officers who stole drugs from smugglers and resold them.

The Senate's rejection of U.S. District Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp's nomination to the federal appeals court (April 12) is one of those rare rays of hope in the revolting federal/state/local governments' coddling of bigots. All levels of government still provide enormous tax subsidies to the prejudiced hypocrites who people private clubs. If these bigots were forced to pay for their own memberships and own meals without an 80% government-blessed tax deduction, most of these dens of discrimination would fade out of existence!

Two years ago, Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee blocked the nomination of U.S. District Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in part because he belonged for more than two decades to a country club that refused to admit African-Americans or Jews. The principle that the committee demonstrated was correct then and the panel should stick to that principle now.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has confirmed all 76 candidates that President Bush has named to the federal bench. But the committee should reject the nomination of U.S. District Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. A Reagan appointee to the Miami bench, Ryskamp has an appalling record on civil rights. According to testimony at his confirmation hearings, Judge Ryskamp ruled against civil-rights plaintiffs far more often than other federal judges.
