Jolly has made at least 1 hire, and Barskdale was still interviewing last week.

Smith is done for 2016 per OSCAR.

For Jones, are we talking about 2015 or 2016 on her being done?

I was asking about 2016. Didn't think there were any 2015 COAs that hadn't hired already.

+1 also heard this.

On another note, anyone know to what extent a district court under the 5th Circuit advantages you in getting a 5th Circuit position the subsequent year (if at all)?

Costa has been hiring since December, but he is still looking/offering interviews.

Well that has to be super frustrating for some of the people he's been interviewing rather than interviewing and hiring all openings close together.

Just curious. When you say Jones is done for 2016, how do you know?

5th circuit taking their time. My two friends and I respectively interviewed with three different 5th circuit judges in the recent weeks. All did said they would take a while and none appear to have decided yet. They know we are waiting, right?

I know this is probably the wrong thread (if we're only talking 5th Circuit), but what Texas district court judges have made recent moves in the past 1-3 weeks?

In NDTX, Fitzwater is recently full for 2016. I believe that Godbey and Lynn are also recently full but perhaps someone else can confirm (or deny). More generally, there has been a lot of movement since the beginning of February. Things are moving quickly.

Prado and Costa were interviewing at the same time, and Costa is now filled. Anyone know of Prado hiring anyone recently/finishing?

Prado is finished for 2016. Not accepting apps yet for 2017.

Anyone have news on Judge Graves?

Anyone hear of any movement recently for 2016 or 2017?
