There is a fascinating fight going on behind the scenes of a case about to reach the Supreme Court. The argument more or less boils down to whether a local attorney who has been with a case for a decade or an experience Supreme Court advocate fresh to the case should argue in front of the Court. They motioned for divided time but the Court said no so they have to duke it out sometime before arguments on November 3rd. The BLT has more on the case here.

Tom Goldstein (of SCOTUSblog) will most likely be arguing against whoever is chosen to represent the state.
