I hope it's not with my judicial crush, Danny Boggs. I had my recommenders call him and he didn't even send me his quiz! If with Clay, however, good luck... Rogers seemed like a prick in my interview but I understand he's a nice guy once you get to know him. Cole is... interesting.
No need to worry -- it wasn't with any of these judges.
Well... then it's with Siler (a very nice old man but an incompetent disengaged judge with lousy clerks who hates anyone convicted of anything), Batchelder (blah), Cook (not as blah), Moore (very bright, obviously, but extremely doctrinaire to the point of disingenuous record-combing in capital cases and analytic incoherence whenever the rights of a criminal defendant are involved), Suhrheinrich (kind of a joke), Griffin (to paraphrase Fleetwood Mac, will the next GOP President ever break the chain of extraordinarily unremarkable conservative nominees to the 6th Circuit, Sutton, Rogers, Boggs, Kethledge and McKeague notwithstanding???) Daughtrey (liberal, sweet, not so smart, recently began an opinion in a death case by citing polling data on the death penalty, only to go in the next sentence, "but that's not what this case is about - just a technical issue which I will decide with no regard for what I just said in previous sentence about polling data!"), Gilman (very capable), Merritt (brilliant once, now in decline, though hardly tapped out), and... I think all the rest were done hiring long ago, except for Stranch (okay? maybe?). The 6th is a lot of fun though. If you're really lucky, you'll be around when the Michigan affirmative action en banc is still going on.
