D.N.J. is a big place. Name names! (Or at least the city for criminy.)

I'm particularly interested if it's one of Rodriguez, Cecchi, Hayden, McNulty, Shipp, or Wigenton.

Congrats! I applied by the early-offer deadline and heard nada, so I don't expect to hear from them now.

If you have an interview in a place where you live, is it still appropriate to call chambers and ask for parlay interviews?

Along similar lines, 3d Cir. nominee and DNJ Magistrate Judge Shwartz has called - she's not on OSCAR but apparently following the plan.

Career Services and former/current clerks have said not to do this, but I still struggle to see how this can hurt more than not getting an interview in the first place.

Has anyone heard any updates from DDC or NDVA?

Specifically, I don't think we've heard from any calls from Lee, O'Grady, Trenga in NDVA, or from Howell, Jackson, and Lamberth in DDC. Anyone changes?

I'm pretty sure that nobody's reported calls from O'Grady or Lamberth, because I've had my eye out for them.

(BTW, it's Eastern District of Virginia, not Northern.)

Bah, of course you're right. Slip of the finger! It's been a long day/weekend/set of business hours since Friday at noon. Glad to know other people are still waiting to hear from these judges!

From what I can tell, there are a quite a few judges that have yet to make calls.

Should the hope list and late move list be reposted every page so it is always visible or should it not be reposted on a subsequent page unless there is new information?

Cecchi hires in irregular cycles and is likely holding her clerks over.
Wigenton only hires clerks with prior law firm experience.
Hayden's calls have gone out.

It looks like Marra has hired, per OSCAR.

Sitting down to read for Administrative Law this evening, I find assigned an opinion by Judge Randolph of the D.C. Circuit, the only remaining D.C. Circuit Judge on the hope list.

I hope that the low response rate to this post is a good indication that the non-Chicago flyover markets haven't done calls yet.

I'm sure most of the Chicago judges have called, but outside of Chicago, who do we know of? Barker, Springmann, anyone else?

Anyone know if Judge Lawson (ED Mich) has made calls?

Or that this board doesn't attract people who apply to those markets?

FWIW, Davis of MN is filled on Oscar, and I think someone said that Magnuson had called or had hired or wasn't hiring or something else along those lines.

At least one ND Ohio and one ED Mich. judge have made calls already.
