According to SCOTUSblog Professor Jeffrey L. Fisher will argue a Confrontation Clause case in front of the Supreme Court:

At 1 p.m., the Court will hear argument in Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts (07-591), on whether the Confrontation Clause gives criminal defendants a right to cross-examine forensic analysts who prepare laboratory reports for use in their prosecution. Jeffrey Fisher of Palo Alto, Calif., will argue for the petitioner, and Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley and Lisa Schertler of the Solicitor General’s office will argue for the respondent.
