Does anyone know if Judge Torruella screens for ties to Puerto Rico and/or Spanish proficiency?

I had an interview with Torruella a few years ago with no ties to Puerto Rico and no Spanish fluency (but did not receive an offer). I was clerking for a court in a different territory though, which might have piqued his interest.

Edit: Its been awhile and my recollection of the interview is hazy, but I think at least one of his law clerks lacked ties to Puerto Rico/Spanish fluency.

It isn’t required although I think he likes to hire at least one local.
