Nope, the whole SDNY decided to take a holiday from making calls, assuming that none of their favorite candidates would take Day 1/Day 2 interviews with EDNY or the Second Circuit. I mean seriously, every federal court, in America, has made at least some calls. Though I've found in calling my Philly list that a few judges there haven't made any calls yet. But just a few.

Yes Paez (not me, a friend got one for 2012 with him).

Was Brody one of the few on the EDPA who hasn't called?

How many judges do you call to see if they've made their decisions and what do you say when you call?

She may be, but she didn't explicitly say so. On the whole though, there was a shocking amount of seeming flexibility. Only McLaughlin said flatly that her Thursday was full; the others, nearly a dozen of them, said they'd see. I would've thought that by 2, a lot of Thursdays would be full.

See above for the very helpful script I copied from GTL's thread. No one took it badly or weirdly at all.

Stein has not made calls at YLS (so he probably has not made calls).

People who STATED they hadn't called, to be clear, are Schiller, Joseph Rodriguez (out in Camden), and... Joyner was ambiguous; the assistant told me the judge wasn't in and would have to decide whether I'd get a call tomorrow. So perhaps he hasn't made calls.

Judge Fitzwater (N.D. Tex) contacted interviewees. Don't know about any others. Does anyone know about Houston D.Ct. judges?

Is it possible to parlay for interviews not in the same city but still far from where you're coming from? For example, if I have interviews in LA and am coming from the east coast, can I call San Francisco judges to try and get an interview?

So just say you're in the area. Of course I don't know how close those places are and it makes scheduling tough; it will devolve into this "oh but I'm only available from 4-6" thing. But yeah, worth trying.

Has anyone heard (or know of anyone that's heard) from Carney (2d), Van Antwerpen (3d), Vanaskie (3d), Clement (5th), Daughtrey (6th) or Barkett (11th)?

I applied to all but Barkett and heard from none. It's my suspicion, by the way, that Carney will be largely hiring from YLS.

Email from Chagares (3d Cir., hiring for 2013): wants to know what I'm doing for 2012 once I find out.

Thanks. Do you have any other COA/D. Ct. interviews lined up? Just trying to see if I'm out of the running or if these calls just haven't been made yet. Figured there's no better place to ask than TLS.

I did get a Bye interview offer very, very early. And yes, to the person who asked me above if I have any COA interviews, I have three, Bye included.

GTLRev

What's the protocol if you were told you were a "close call", but not offered an interview with your first choice COA judge? Would it be OK to call back and ask to interview anyway for 2013? Or should I assume they would have offered if that were an option?
