D.C. Court Weighs in On Bar Suspensions For lawyers such as Harriet Miers, who was suspended for nearly a month for failing to pay her dues to the D.C. Bar, the decision last week from the D.C. Court of Appeals was a kind of validation, with the court ruling that such suspensions are little more than slight blemishes on their record that are easily wiped clean. But Michael Sitcov views it differently. • Some Want Miers On Bench for Ayotte The Senate Judiciary Committee is set to begin its confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers on Nov. 7. But the real date to keep an eye on is Nov. 30, when the Court will hear oral arguments in Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood of New England, the first substantive abortion case it has heard in five years. • Roberts Decides, For Now, To Join Cert Pool Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. has decided, at least for now, to join the so-called cert pool, the group of justices whose law clerks divvy up incoming petitions for certiorari to produce a single memo about each case. • Miers’ Legal Background Comes Into Broader Focus The cases didn’t satisfy Senate Judiciary Chairman Arlen Specter (R-Pa.), but the litigation matters Harriet Miers disclosed in her questionnaire last week offer a slightly broader glimpse into the Supreme Court nominee’s legal background. • White House Nominates New Deputy AG More than two months after the departure of former Deputy Attorney General James Comey, the Justice Department is moving forward to fill its leadership vacuum. Late Friday, the White House nominated Paul McNulty, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve as the new deputy. • Annual Conference Becomes Recruiting Trip On its face, the Association of Corporate Counsel’s annual conference last week was a chance for America’s top general counsel to brainstorm strategies and improve their embattled legal departments. But with more than 2,700 in-house legal staff in D.C. for the three-day affair, law firms had something else in mind: recruiting clients. • Last Coudert Partners Have New Homes The few remaining partners from Coudert Brothers’ D.C. office have found homes. Last week former D.C. and Moscow managing partner Richard Dean and corporate partner Jonathan Cahn opted to join Baker & McKenzie, along with four associates and two paralegals.
