I've heard from a reliable source that Kelly has hired at least one and has finished interviewing.

My rejection email from a few days ago said that he had finished hiring.

Was that a rejection of an application or a rejection after an interview?

Also interested. Has anyone who interviewed with Judge Kelly received a rejection email/letter/call?

I got an email reject from Ebel in March, no interview. So if you've applied and he hasn't rejected you, can't be a bad sign.

I know this might be the most subjective question ever, but who is the best judge on the 10th to work for? As in, who is well regarded or maybe caries more clout and/or prestige?

Gorusch? Bacharach?

Gorsuch and Ebel are the feeders. Outside of CO: Briscoe, Matheson, Bacharach, and Holmes are all good judges to work for.

Re: Holmes- have heard from reliable sources that he's very difficult. Extremely formal and stiff.

Bacharach is a fabulous person. No direct knowledge of what he's like to work for, but one of the nicest, most genuine federal judges you'll ever meet

Heard the same thing re: formal and stiff, but haven't heard that he's a difficult boss in the typical ways--i.e., he's not unpleasant, rude, condescending. Any info to the contrary?

Can confirm. He sent me a really nice, personalized post-interview rejection letter. Class act.
