Federal Judge Recusal and the BP/Gulf Oil Spill

the AP National Investigative Team has put out an article, linked here by Yahoo, concerning how many (as in more than half) of the Federal judges who might hear the Gulf Oil Spill claims have interests in oil companies.

Now I cannot say this is suprising as Federal judges are not exactly poor and investing in oil companies is a normal part of many peoples investment strategy (including mine) but it does bring about some interesting recusal issues.
