How is this enforceable? What happens if I turn one down? I mean, they don't pay or anything, so how come we are supposedly bound by them? If I really need money, and then a paid opportunity arises, am I supposed to disregard my need for money (which i need for things like food, etc) in favor of some arcane rule that says judges are not to be turned down?
UT CSO told me I had to accept if the offer was made to me. (As if!) Considering how much clout and how many connections judges have in the legal community, it would be foolish to piss one off by declining an offer.
