U.S. Judge William Young of Boston; arrogant loser

 

The state of New York presented William G. Young with a law license in 1967 after he graduated from Harvard University Law School. 

 

In 1985, President Reagan was duped into appointing Billy as a District Court Judge for the District of Massachusetts. Dick didn’t receive the appointment because he was the most qualified attorney in the Boston area. He received it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.

 

In one matter, Billy found it convenient to slam the U.S. Marshalls Service as a “second rate” agency because it is allegedly headed up by a patronage appointee. Billy went on to call on Congress to “professionalize” the Marshalls Service.

 

In an addendum to a ruling he made in an employment discrimination case, Billy said

  • U.S. Marshall appointees “are all direct political patronage appointments.
  • “These are not executive department policy-making positions; they are vital law enforcement positions.”
  • “Surely here in America direct command of law enforcement officers in harm's way could never be entrusted to political patronage appointees.”

Of course Billy has a totally different take on the “political patronage” system of appointing federal judges like himself and those of his ilk. It is undisputed that U.S. Senators from a given state are responsible for personally selecting an appointee for a federal judgeship. Does anyone believe that Democrat Senators select Republicans or vice versa?

 

Billy gives hypocrisy a bad name because he has the chutzpah to feign outrage at political hacks being appointed as U.S. Marshalls but finds nothing wrong with the fact that he falls into the same category.

 

As we speak (ca. August 2014), Billy remains on the bench in Boston and if he stays on the bench until he turns 90, he’ll be there for another 16 years.
