Jackson's Chin not Jackson's Chin, Chin says

So he reads our Web site, anyway

Microsoft Trial How extraordinary. In our story yesterday, we suggested that Judge Jackson might be benefiting from the clerkship of Andrew Chin, since that is what Chin's personal web site says. However, Chin has contacted us to say that "I am not the law clerk Judge Jackson has officially assigned to the [Microsoft] case", although he is one of the judge's clerks. We note the use of the word "officially" in his email, and can only hope that unofficially he may be involved. This clerkship started in 1999, so in any event he would have been at least three months behind in his reading of the transcripts, let alone the earlier documentation of the case. The law clerk officially on the case is David McIntosh. Chin also asked us to point out that he is not yet employed by Wilson Sonsini, although he has accepted an offer of employment there after his clerkship has finished. We were misled by Chin's website that states, with a 1999 date, that he is an Associate of Wilson Sonsini, but there you are. Chin said that he was aware of Reback's role in the consent decree case, but that "any implication that my views of the case have been or will be influenced by Mr Reback is a serious distortion of the facts". Of course. But you don't go to work with Wilson Sonsini if you really love Microsoft. ®
