Happy Friday from Avalon and Brad, and welcome to another round-up of the week’s news about the judiciary. This week, we’re taking a closer look at Judge James Ho’s boycott of Yale Law students as clerks, and how common it is for judges and law students to take ideology into account when hiring for their chambers. Plus, next week, there’s a meeting of the Advisory Committee on Appellate Rules, and two groups have recently brought a disclosure issue to their attention. 

As always, please reach out to us via [email protected] or [email protected] with any tips or feedback. Follow us on Twitter: @AvalonZoppo and @BradKutner.
