Federal Judge suggests anti-wokeness remedy

I'm of two minds about this. On the one hand, it's incredibly sad that we have so little selection to these prestigious positions from outside these three main firms. That to me suggests a less-than-rigorous selection process in the first place and one has to posit that this is a leading cause of the wokeness infecting our Federal judgeships in the first place. It also saddens me that law and order is becoming seen through a political, i.e. leftist lens. (Yes, Elena Kagan and Sotomayor we are looking straight at YOU.)

The second part of me wants the competition, however, and having Judges refuse to hire clerks coming from campuses so obviously hostile to US values seems to be an effective method of pushback.

Your thoughts?

    That decision is right tho' should be better expressed.

    How about a real list of job requirements?
    .. ability to think impartially,
    .. can reach decision based on law and not on 'social media' values?

      For something like this, I envision something far more along the lines of an actual case analysis and write-up, similar to the Bar exam. Put that in there along with grades, etc. so that the hiring judge can see if the person's thinking is up to snuff.

    It's nice to see someone has received the free-market message and taken action.
    In the Gulch, we have been promoting (and acting in) such boycott activities for years.
