A Trifecta And A Sprint At The Supreme Court
The Blog of Legal Times reports that Lecturer in Law Thomas Goldstein was on a party's brief in three cases in the Supreme Court all in one day. What's more, his colleagues from the Supreme Court Litigation Clinic, Professors Pamela Karlan and Jeffrey Fisher argued two of the cases.
Stanford Law professor Jeffrey Fisher, who teaches in the clinic, argued in the first case Burgess v. United States, involving sentencing for drug offenders, and professor Pamela Karlan, founding director of the clinic, was set to argue in the third case Riley v. Kennedy, a Voting Rights Act dispute. Patricia Millett, Goldstein's Akin Gump colleague, argued in the second case, a tax dispute called United States v. Clintwood Elkhorn Mining Company. It was Millett's private practice debut at the Court, following more than a decade at the solicitor general's office. Goldstein sat at the counsel's table with Millett.
