A sure sign that Justice Sandra Day O’Connor is preparing for a longer-than-expected pre-retirement tenure on the Court: She has hired back one of her four law clerks from last term. It’s Yale Law School superstar Tali Farhadian, who joins the three clerks O’Connor had expected to make do with for the term. The return of Farhadian, a former clerk of D.C. Circuit Judge Merrick Garland, creates what appears to be a first in law clerk history: five clerks from a single appeals judge’s chambers serving in the same Supreme Court term. The other Garland alums: Kennedy clerk David Cooper, Souter clerk Meaghan McLaine, and Breyer clerks Danielle Gray and Jonathan Kravis. Cooper, McLaine, and Kravis share another experience: they worked with D.C.’s Goldstein & Howe as summer associates or in its Stanford Law School clinic. Farhadian’s rehire was first reported on the gossipy Underneath Their Robes blog, which has become an authoritative source for news about law clerks.
