Premium in a Garland clerkship
In the decorous competition among lower court judges to supply clerks to serve Supreme Court Justices, D.C. Circuit Judge Merrick B. Garland has emerged as a champion for the Justices’ coming Term. In the new listing of clerks, it turns out that six of the 39 former lower court clerks who will be working at the Supreme Court for current or retired Justices are from the Garland chambers. No other lower court judge supplied more than three.
