Anyone hearing anything out of the Fourth Circuit judges regarding interviews or hiring?

Bennet and Garbis (both d.md) have allegedly hired through 2015-17. These hires were very early and resulted from prior connections with the judges.

Other than that, haven't heard of any judges doing more than accepting apps in Md.

I got a lovely letter by U.S. Mail from Judge Thacker yesterday stating that she had received my paper application and was dinging me. It actually was a very nice letter and hearing back from these judges, even with a ding, is so much nicer than hearing nothing at all. FYI for people who mailed her and may still be alive.

Anyone know about Judge Duncan? Updated last week to say she was hiring for 2015-16 but now that is filled and she has a position listed for 2016-17.

Has anyone heard of any movement from Judge Diaz regarding interviews?

Floyd is done. Traxler has four career clerks and didn't have a term clerk for 2013-2014. OSCAR seems to indicate he's not hiring one for 2014 or 2015 either. I've heard that Shedd hasn't started interviewing yet.
