Breaking streak, SCOTUS appoints advocate outside ranks of former clerks

    By: Nor Attisha on Jun 11, 2018

    Tony Mauro writes, “Without fanfare, the U.S. Supreme Court has broken a long streak of appointing former law clerks to undertake prestigious oral arguments in cases in which one party has abandoned a stance that the justices want discussed.

    On May 25, the court announced that Atlanta solo practitioner Amy Weil was “invited to brief and argue” as amicus curiae in favor of an appeals court decision that neither side supports anymore in a Social Security attorney-fee case that will be argued next term.”
