The former, I believe. Maybe he plans on stepping down?

Barron is done for 2016-17 and has hired one for 2017-18...I'm not sure if he's currently interviewing for that term, though.

Not sure what's going on with his one 2015-16 spot. I assume he'll be looking to fill that one ASAP, if he hasn't already.

Anyone know if Torreulla is the only non-Boston judge who keeps a clerk in Boston full time? Or do Howard, Thompson, Lipez, Selya and/or Kayatta do so as well?

Barron has hired for at least one of his two remaining spots. The other one was still open (but he was reviewing applications) as of last week.

Anyone know Thompson's hiring schedule? She doesn't post on OSCAR.

Lynch is known to have a pretty strict, no-nonsense, no chummy-buddy shooting-the-sh*t with her clerks attittude. Whole chambers is run through her long-time assistant, who Lynch has made known is the only person in chambers she really values. But she's a well-respected judge by her peers. Re hiring, many if not most are HLS grads, HLR preferred, grade-heavy, often professor recommendation-based.

100% correct; there were 4 HLS grads for the '15-'16 term, 2 HLR editors + 2 secondary journal managing board members, 3 magnas and 1 cum.
