We came back from the Thanksgiving holiday with a two-week glut of Litigator of the Week nominations. So, hold onto your seats: The runners-up and shout outs are extensive and impressive this week.

First up, Randy Mastro and Akiva Shapiro of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher landed a runner-up spot for two big wins they scored late on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. At the U.S. Supreme Court, the pair scored a rare All Writs Act emergency injunction in a challenge the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, New York, brought to Governor Cuomo’s restrictions on in-person church attendance in purported COVID-19 hotspots. The pair also scored a win for the West Side Community Organization, three Upper West Side residents, and a homeless individual, when New York Supreme Court Justice Debra James dismissed all claims brought by residents in the Financial District seeking to block the City of New York from transferring 200 homeless men temporarily living at the Lucerne Hotel to a new facility downtown.
