WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
VOICES - An amicus brief filed by Paul Weiss lawyers with personal stories from women legal professionals is among the friends-of-the-court briefs submitted late Monday by more than a dozen major U.S. law firms urging the U.S. Supreme Court not to restrict access to reproductive rights in this term’s major abortion case. The Paul Weiss brief was signed by 368 women, including a number of Big Law partners and associates, law professors, public defenders, public interest advocates and many others. The case originating from Louisiana, June Medical Services v. Rebekah Gee, is set for argument in early March. Almost four years ago in a separate case, more than 100 women lawyers and former judges joined in an amicus brief, co-authored by a Paul Weiss associate, to tell the high court about their own abortion experiences and why their reproductive freedom was pivotal to their personal and professional lives. The court ruled in that case that Texas could not place restrictions that create an undue burden for women seeking an abortion.
