seems like a lot of ministerial bullshit for not a lot of money re: state judges.

federal judges you take a huge pay cut for prestige. district judges don't matter. i might be tempted to give up wealth for the power that comes with circuit court.

otherwise if you can maek it as a judge your life will be so much better if you just stay private.

yeah it's a catch 22. i've seen lazy inhousemos that are politically connected cop district. but they you gotta sweat it out in district before getting elevated, if that ever happens.

coa is like the actual happy end of the prestige treadmill. anything else (e.g. biglaw partner) seems like a hellish life.

district judges don’t matter? Lol bro you aren’t even a litigator. 99 percent of decisions a district judge makes are never reviewed by an appellate court. Most of these district decisions are not actually appealable because of the wide discretion District judges have. And most cases settle based on those decisions. District judges completely frame your case and can easily torpedo a case they don’t like without actually subjecting themself to any actual review process.

oh tell me more about how the impact of judge whatever the fuck from the district court of flyover is shaping our great nation!

everything you said is true but that barely move the needle on national policy and law. the only reason i'd give up wealth and independence for government work is if my contributions made a significant difference to the country. and, imo, district court judges don't make enough of a difference for me to spend my life being one.

you sound like some midlevel manager at a random government agency talking about how important their job is.

i'm not but i'm making $$$ and don't have to deal with all sorts of nonsense a judge has to do. i get to poast on xo all day. i'd rather have that than the infinitesimally small amount of influence a district court judge has.

that's all i'm saying. for me to give it up it would have to be for something which actual influence, which i don't think district court has enough. in lieu of that i'll just keep being a faggot in-house do-nothing.

bench trials are cool but dealing with juries and the voluminous presentation of evidence of annoying. i would mostly zone out. 95% of trials is just going through the motions and the cool parts happen infrequently. its different when you're the litigant but as a judge it seems like it would get boring fast.

It doesn’t pay much but if federal I think you can grift a bit and also get invited to social shit if that’s important to you. Also for a lot of people getting their ass kissed all day everyday even on the weekends is a huge QOL thing.

its gay as shit unless u are into that shit. state court judges deal with tons of insane niggas and stuff, and unlike pig cops who can act like animals with no consequences if u mouth off to a defendant or someone u can get in trouble with these faggot judicial councils

fed is better cause quality of litigant is higher and fed courthouses also a lot nicer usually

and most exp judges can leave and make bank as mediators and arbitrators working 2-3 days a week if that

but overall wld rather just slave away in shitlol then this shit
