When Alan Morrison left Washington, D.C., for the Left Coast pace of Stanford Law School in 2004, he saw little prospect of adding to the 16 cases he had argued before the Supreme Court during his career at the Ralph Nader-created Public Citizen Litigation Group. Even this summer, when Morrison decided to return to the District as a special counsel to D.C. Attorney General Linda Singer, he thought he’d be working on local legal problems, not strategizing litigation before the high court.

But last week, Singer confirmed that if the Supreme Court grants review in the city’s defense of its 31-year-old handgun ban, Morrison will argue the case for the city. “He’s taken that trip a few times,” Singer says. Morrison insists, “It’s not something I had on my radar screen” when he decided to come back to the District.
