This blog is so full of hypocrisy. You guys constantly bitch that jnc applicants are just looking for a raise because they can't make it in the private sector. You bitch that some of the new judges have no trial experience. Here comes Milt Hirsch and Miguel De la O, two guys taking huge pay cuts, successful private careers and loads of trial experience, and you anonymous yahoos begin engaging in petty juvenile name calling. Tear these guys down, and you'll get the judges you deserve. Sure Milt has an ego, but he's earned it and is a good guy. Talk to him and see for yourself. Have you ever spoken to Miguel? Completely down to earth, approachable guy, with no ego. We could do a lot worse (Planas, Adrien, Swartz), and won't find many better.
