Griffith's past two classes killed it. Other than that, negligible differences.


And Judge Griffith's clerks are doing great because of the quality of the clerks he's hiring...

Got one too, but scheduled for Monday morning. Won't out the judge, but I'm at a T-14, two published notes.

Do bankruptcy courts follow on plan as strictly as district court judges?

Considering I know of two others with similar accomplishments who received interviews for the same court, I doubt I outed myself, but I cut it back to cma.

Do we think they'll stick to the new rules requiring that they wait until noon eastern, or will they start now in accordance with the old 10am regime?

I dunno. Got a call at 8:30-ish, EST, but silence since then. Hopefully that means they aren't starting 'til noon, rather than it meaning that that first call was just a fluke (which, unfortunately, is more likely).

I never would have thought "Call Me Maybe" would be relevant to my life. But right now it very much is. Kudos anon poster of catchy pop music.

Yeah, really hoping that those who are sticking to the plan are also actually waiting until 12Noon/9PST. Because I've got crickets over here.

Nothing yet. But that just means that the calls are going to flood in at noon. Right? :(

Camden. Had an interview earlier this week in Trenton. Got the impression that DNJ had a lot of off-plan and early hiring going on.

E.D. Arkansas interview this morning via email. Nothing since. I would imagine those who are sticking to the plan actually are mostly waiting.

Also crickets so far today. Got a State Supreme interview request earlier this week, but I'm expecting absolutely nothing this morning.
