Man's Death Has 'Far-Reaching Effect'
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch quotes Professor Jeff Fisher and Lecturer in Law Thomas Goldstein in a Supreme Court case in which the appellant Mario Claiborne was shot to death before the high court could rule on the case:
"Once people make it to the Supreme Court, we don't tend to lose them," said Tom Goldstein, who heads the Supreme Court practice of Washington law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld.
Stanford Law School Professor Jeff Fisher said, "I would think this is a once-a-decade kind of thing." Fisher has clerked for and argued in front of the high court.
