(Updated with a hot fed rumor below)
David Young is back on the bench!
And he is really really excited about it and wants everyone to know how happy he is to be back.
We've been thinking about other Judges who have voluntarily resigned and then gotten their position back.
The only name that comes to mind is Judge Joe Farina. He left the bench, returned and then had a good run as chief of criminal court and then Chief Judge.
When compared to our humble REGJB, the feds rumor mill is downright G rated. But then everyone's favourite federal blogger dropped this rumor in his first working day post of 2017 imaginatively entitled "2017!" :
Speaking of District Judges, there is a rumor going around that one of our own DJs is interested in the new U.S. Attorney slot. Anyone else hearing this?
Considering DOM spent part of the holidays photo bombing and taking selfies with the President Elect of the United States on Trump's private golf course in Jupiter (belying his image as a defense attorney of the proletariat) , he would appear to know something about this.
This is a juicy one. Any ideas?
See you in court.
