Good morning and welcome to Supreme Court Brief. On this first week after the term’s final week, we take a look at the advocates who scored the most arguments in the October 2020 term. A panel of veteran advocates and court scholars say what they will be watching as the new term looms. And there is a familiar “new” public face of the Supreme Court. Thanks for reading and your feedback is welcome and appreciated. Contact Marcia Coyle at [email protected] and follow her on Twitter @MarciaCoyle.
