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 look at a database run by a nonprofit that’s slated to go live in the spring that will make it easier for prospective clerks to research judges and if they have a history of mistreating their clerks. Plus, a judge who displayed a gun at a hearing earlier this year has resigned from the bench. 

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.
