Say It Ain't So

The New Yorker (from whom I stole the cartoon at left) is reporting that my first choice for clerk and best fan, the judicial starf**ker Article 3 Groupie, is in fact the fictional creation of a sweet and somewhat dorky looking guy in New Jersey named David Lat.

In case you are wondering why I can no longer link to her site, it's because the Department of Justice has already taken it down by force.

Don't worry "D3L" (as you now will be known to us), when I am elevated to the court, I will certainly support an anonymous blogger shield law, similar to the one that far less savory characters have pleaded for.

As far as David himself, don't worry. The US Attorney's office in Newark might not be the same thing as clerking for the Supremes, but plenty of people have gone on to great things from there.

For those of you interested in the write-in and call-in campaign to "Free Underneath their Robes and Protect the First Amendment," the US Attorney's office in Newark can be contacted as follows:

U.S. Attorney's Office
Peter W. Rodino, Jr. Federal Building
970 Broad Street, 7th Floor
Newark, NJ 07102

You've got it. First thing in the morning, I won't be anonymous! I am a political activist as well as a human rights activist. I will try to get to the bottom of this.

They had better have their "i"'s dotted and their "t"'s crossed! Then they need to show me the habius corpus they used! This is an outrage! I am so angry, I cannot think straight.

Why? What happened? What law was broken? Come after me you cowardly bast*rds! I've got your number.

It is purely political. How much you wanna bet?! Aarrgghh, and grrrr.

Do we have any evidence that DOJ actually had anything to do with the site being taken down? It could just as easily have to do with some of the vicious comments being made at Volokh or on the Greedy Clerks board

Yes, anonymous we do. The comments on Volokh were 100% creepy, but stopping the site was DOJ-related.

Can't our buddy Mr. Pat investigate this?
