Hmmmmmmmmm

Those familiar with Souter’s practices say he asked around for names of potential candidates for clerks earlier this year, a sign he was thinking of staying on the court. But it’s not clear yet that he has actually interviewed them, which might be a sign that he’s considering retirement. It might be that he’s just late in attending to clerk duty this year. Souter’s chambers are saying nothing, not even giving winks or nods for guidance.
