After James Ho Boycott, Another Conservative Judge Responds: Great, More Yale Clerks For Me!

Judge James Ho of the Fifth Circuit announced that he’s going to stop hiring clerks from the Yale Law Federalist Society pool to protest the fact that other Yale students don’t invite Federalist Society students to parties. If you’re straining to figure out how this makes any sense, remember that Judge Ho doesn’t care a whit about these students or even Yale Law School and cares a whole lot about hyping his name by throwing some low stakes — for him — red meat into the maw of the right-wing media grudge campaign against Yale.

Yale Law Students Must Be Quaking in Their Boots

I’ll say this much for US appeals court Judge James Ho: He’s defying the stereotype that Asian Americans are quiet worker bees who fade into the background. Ho, who sits on the Fifth Circuit, has been throwing himself under klieg lights. “I will no longer hire law clerks from Yale Law School,” he declared at a Federalist Society conference in Kentucky last week. Ho miffed that the school “not only tolerates the cancellation of views—it actively practices it.”

After 5th Circuit judge boycotts Yale Law School grads, his conservative colleague hangs out welcome sign

U.S. Circuit Judge Jerry E. Smith is encouraging Yale Law School graduates to apply for his clerkships after his colleague announced that he won’t be hiring any of them. Smith is a member of the 5th U.S. Circuit of Appeals at New Orleans, as is the judge who is boycotting Yale Law grads, Circuit Judge James C. Ho. Both are conservative.
