Congratulations to blogging hotties Heidi Bond, of Letters of Marque, and JudithEmily, of Punch & Judy, on scoring some awesome Ninth Circuit clerkships! Even though the Ninth Circuit gets a bad rap, due to its fairly high reversal rate, it's a very fun circuit to clerk for, due to the colorful characters and peculiar personalities who populate it.
Also, it's worth noting that the judges Heidi and Judith will be clerking for are typically vindicated rather than bench-slapped by the Supremes. Heidi will be clerking for the #1 Superhottie of the Federal Judiciary, Judge Alex Kozinski, and Judy will be clerking for Judge Cynthia Holcomb Hall, a former paramour of the late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist.
Someone recently accessed this blog by running this search. A3G's answer: most definitely! Just don't violate your duties of confidentiality to your judge, and be sure to comply with all applicable judicial ethics rules. (For some helpful guidance on the subject of blogging while clerking, check out this excellent discussion at stickbugblog.) A3G hopes that Heidi and Judy will remain in the blogosphere, even after they start walking the hallowed halls of the House of Hotties, a.k.a. 125 South Grand Avenue, Pasadena, California. Once again, congratulations, ladies!
If you know of other bloggers who have obtained fantastic federal judicial clerkships -- or if you are one yourself -- please post a comment to this post (along with a link to the blog in question). Thanks!
P.S. The folks over at Jewdicious, who recently taught A3G a little Yiddish, might enjoy the Yiddish lessons being given by the commenters to this post by Heidi. As we all know, Heidi's future boss co-authored the leading authority on Yiddish in the law: Alex Kozinski & Eugene Volokh, Lawsuit, Schmawsuit, 103 Yale L.J. 463 (1993).
