Supreme Court hallway Above the Law Above the Law Above the Law.JPGThanks to everyone who responded to our open call for Supreme Court clerk hiring news. We now know the identities of Justice David H. Souter’s four law clerks for October Term 2008:

1. Erin Delaney (NYU 2007 / Guido-maniac)
2. Michael Gerber (Yale 2005 / Leval)
3. Warren Postman, (Harvard 2007 / W. Fletcher)
4. Noah Purcell (Harvard 2007 / Tatel Tot)

Congratulations to all. And if someone could put their names into Wikipedia, now that their hiring has been confirmed, that would be most appreciated.
We’re still missing those last two Alito clerks. Are they playing a game of hide and seek with us? If you can give us a hint as to who they are — or, better yet, name, rank, and feeder judge clerkship — please email us.
Updated lists of the OT 2008 and OT 2009 SCOTUS clerks, with the DHS clerks added, after the jump.


Please bring errors or omissions to our attention by email (subject line: “Supreme Court clerk hiring”). Thanks.
