Most of the Term-in-Review stories being published these days say that the current Supreme Court is “the Kennedy Court,” and that the goal of successful Supreme Court litigators is to persuade my former boss Justice Kennedy. In light of that, I thought I would point out that this week my two-year post-clerkship ban on Supreme Court practice has ended. (Former Supreme Court clerks are barred from practicing before the Court or advising litigants on pending cases or likely future pending cases for two years after their clerkship ends.) I’m not looking to take on anything big, but it would be fun to dip my toes in the Supreme Court waters a bit. I’m particularly interested in working on petitions and merits cases in the criminal procedure field on a pro bono basis, as that’s the area in which I teach and write, but I would be open to helping out on other types of cases, too. So if you have a potential case and need some help, or just want some advice, feel free to give me a call.
