Most of what appears in the pages of UTR is submitted sua sponte to Article III Groupie by her readers. But occasionally Article III Groupie will request information and tips on specified subjects through posts in this category, UTR Discovery Requests: Seeking Sneak Peaks Under the Robes. (Article III Groupie spends thousands of hours a year reviewing discovery produced by opposing counsel, but UTR discovery requests are the only ones she actually enjoys receiving responses to.)
To those UTR readers who are getting Ninth Circuit fatigue, or who think that Article III Groupie is playing favorites in the East Coast-West Coast rivalry, you're in luck. Placing a northeastern judge squarely in her cross hairs, Article III Groupie hereby solicits news and gossip from her readers about UTR's next hapless victim: GUIDO, a.k.a. the Honorable Guido Calabresi of the Second Circuit, the highly prestigious, New York-based appeals court.
Article III Groupie is currently working on a special report tentatively titled Kiss Me, Guido. "Kiss Me, Guido" will begin by analyzing the scandal arising out of Guido's recent, ill-considered, and downright disastrous remarks about President Bush (a scandal hereinafter referred to as "Guidogate"). The post will then use Guidogate as the springboard for a probing psychological profile of this jurist--one of the most fabulous, flawed, and fascinating figures in the entire federal judiciary!
If you are cackling in delirious anticipation of what UTR has in store for you, well, cackle away! Article III Groupie promises you that "Kiss Me, Guido" will be as delectable as the beef cheek ravioli with crushed squab liver served at New York's Babbo restaurant. (This report will, among other things, introduce you to an important addition to the lexicon of Supreme Court clerkship feeding: the Big Pimpin' Feeder Judge.)
But Article III Groupie needs your help. She already has a significant amount of material about Guido, but she wants more--as much as she can get her hands on. Please e-mail her with any information, gossip, or humorous anecdotes about Guido, on an expedited basis. Grazie!
Looking forward to eating Italian,
