Marcia Coyle has an interest article at law.com about the surprising dominance of the most elite advocates at the Supreme Court during OT08. In particular, she mentions that ‘elite’ advocates argued in 35 out of 78 cases argued during the most recent number. Also, Ted Olson’s seven arguments in one term might be the highest for any attorney in private practice in at least 20 years.
