50 More Federal Judges

Deven Desai

Deven Desai is an associate professor of law and ethics at the Scheller College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology. He was also the first, and to date, only Academic Research Counsel at Google, Inc., and a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy. He is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and the Yale Law School. Professor Desai’s scholarship examines how business interests, new technology, and economic theories shape privacy and intellectual property law and where those arguments explain productivity or where they fail to capture society’s interest in the free flow of information and development. His work has appeared in leading law reviews and journals including the Georgetown Law Journal, Minnesota Law Review, Notre Dame Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, and U.C. Davis Law Review.

    Like many things, Cass Sunstein has done this before you even thought to do it.

    Hmm, Sunstein wrote about an article on Law.com that just came out? Possible. The man is amazing if nothing else for the volume of writing. He maybe noted that this act exists and said something beyond this post also possible. OR maybe you mean to say that he has written about the ideas in the last part of the post. As I said maybe someone has done this work. Now if in your humble estimation all should know everything Prof. Sunstein has written, that is a rather odd and untenable position to take. Given the way the post is written (i.e., an invitation to do more with a nod that there has likelyu been work on the topic), perhaps you’d care to share with everyone your deep knowledge of Prof. Sunstein’s work and how it addresses the point.

    Haha, I apologize, Deven, if I came across as teasing you. I was merely praising Cass for always having interesting things to talk about, and always being one step of everyone else.

    The part I was referring to is the question of how often judges adhere to party lines, and the piece I’m thinking of is this one:


    This is not the be all and end all in this area, but it’s definitely along these lines, and it’s worth a read.

    The first part of your post was useful and informative. Thank you!

    Fair enough. And most importantly thanks (and I truly mean that) for the link and feedback. It makes the blogging game worth playing.

    Have great July 4th weekend.

    Speaking as a (now) 2L, I, for one, welcome the prospect of 36 new Court of Appeals clerkships.
