Judges with daughters are more likely to vote in favor of women's rights than ones with only sons, according to a new study in the American Journal of Political Science. The effect is most pronounced among male judges appointed by Republican presidents, like the late Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist. "Things like having daughters can actually fundamentally change how people view the world, and this, in turn, affects how they decide cases," said study co-author Maya Sen of the University of Rochester. The study finds, "Having one daughter as opposed to one son, is linked to an even higher 16 percent increase in the proportion of gender-related cases decided in a feminist direction."

No kidding. Republicans are generally selfish and lack empathy. If it doesn't personally affect them, they just don't care.

Or alternatively having a daughter allows them to see things from a female point of view making them less biased ..... Remove all the rest.

It depends on your personal bias which ones you view as biased. If any bias does emerge on either side of the issue the judge in question should be removed, but a general trend either direction does not necessarily indicate overt bias.
