This has been a huge week of confirmations for people still applying. There have been eight district court judges confirmed this week, five of whom will be stationed in major cities (plus one in CDCA but in Riverside) and all of whom were confirmed by overwhelming margins. Plus David Dugan and Stephen McGlynn of S.D. Ill. and Todd Robinson of SDCA should be confirmed tomorrow. Cloture has also been scheduled for Iain Johnston of NDIL (though he will probably be posted in Rockford, not Chicago). Also Jamie Grosshans was appointed to the Florida Supreme Court this week.

You should look through earlier confirmations this summer as well. Some, like John Cronan on SDNY, are already full for 2020 and 2021 and hiring for 2022. Anna Manasco is somehow full until 2023.

Anyone have any thoughts if the new appointees will post to OSCAR? Or should we send applications to chambers?

There are five more nominees that will likely get through the Committee tomorrow. There is a strong likelihood that they will also be confirmed soon.

Valdarrama, in NDIL and stationed in Chicago, should also be confirmed tomorrow. He is supported by Democrats and opposed by some Republicans.

Also note that the SDIL judges had a good amount of liberal opposition over guns and abortions. They got blue slips from Durbin and Duckworth despite that as part of a deal with the White House.

Do you have a source for this? I'm curious to read more.

Courts Matter Illinois had an op-ed in the Tribune about it today that Brian Fallon linked on Twitter. I'm sure there's more out there if you google around. Illinois has a longstanding screening committee system for nominees run by its senators, something like that for every two nominees the President's party gets the opposition gets one. Question 26 (the last one) of the Senate Judiciary Questionnaire for nominees is about how you were selected and nominees in Illinois typically describe it. It's how, for example, Mary Rowland got appointed by Trump and John Tharp got appointed by Obama. And how Scudder and St. Eve got appointed by Trump and confirmed unanimously-ish. Because of it the appointing president doesn't necessarily mean much in Illinois. You can see it even with older judges like Ilana Rovner, an incredibly liberal Bush I appointee on the Seventh Circuit.

What makes you think it is unlikely in the next few months?

Anyone know when these newly confirmed judges will get their commissions (and then addresses/specific assignments)? Curious where one would mail an app and when

Do newly confirmed judges give offers only after getting a judicial commission and getting sworn in, or is it a matter of preference?

It'll happen in the next few months. But it looked like it might happen before October. Now, it's possible it might not happen until after the election.

I agree. I could see it being as late as December.

Had an interview last Friday but haven’t heard anything since then. Safe to say that I got dinged?

Not unless they told you that you’d definitely hear from them by now if they were making you an offer (and even then, things happen). Some judges like to interview a complete pool before making an offer. No way to know unless they told you something very specific.

That said, you don’t have the offer until you have the offer, so you should mentally put it aside and move on.

While earlier is always better than later, I waited 2 and a half weeks for my offer and had mentally moved on when I got the call.

Not unless you know the judge has offered others.
