At the Supreme Court on Monday morning, an unusually large number of veteran advocates was on hand to watch oral arguments. But they were not there just to listen to the unusual discussion of how to compensate individuals for the thieving ways of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, at issue in the first argument, Republic of the Philippines v.

He was arguing in the 100th case of his career in the solicitor general’s office, more than any lawyer currently in practice. Former Deputy Solicitor General Lawrence Wallace, who argued 157 cases before retiring in 2002, was in the audience, as were one-time colleagues David Frederick, Richard Lazarus and Andrew Pincus, all now in private practice.
