In this new UTR feature, Judicial Birthday Watch, Article III Groupie will send birthday greetings to your favorite favorite judges. Please e-mail A3G to alert her of any upcoming judicial birthdays. Interesting or humorous birthday anecdotes, including scandalous tales of judicial birthday blow-outs, are especially welcome.
Today is a very special day for two judicial hotties:
It's a remarkable coincidence that these two judges, who are quite close, have the same birthday (and even the same initials, sort of). Could they be the same person? For those of you who are curious, AK clerked for AMK on the Ninth Circuit from 1975 to 1976. At the time, Judge Kozinski was 25 and Justice Kennedy was 39.
"Underneath Their Robes" and Article III Groupie wish both of these distinguished jurists very happy birthdays! (Or, as they say in Judge Kozinski's native Romania, "La multi ani!")
Birthday hugs and kisses,
