Slate senior writer Mark Joseph Stern tweeted Thursday that U.S. Court of Appeals Senior Judge Laurence Silberman of the D.C. Circuit had sent an email to the listservs for all Article III judges in the U.S., which read: "The latest events at Yale Law School in which students attempted to shout down speakers participating in a panel discussion on free speech prompts me to suggest that students who are identified as those willing to disrupt any such panel discussion should be noted. All federal judges--and all federal judges are presumably committed to free speech--should carefully consider whether any student so identified should be disqualified for potential clerkships."

Silberman was referring to protesters at a March 10 Federalist Society event that hosted Waggoner, who is general counsel of the Alliance Defending Freedom, an organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated a hate group.
