Tell us about your top U.S. Supreme Court or federal appeals court victory over the past year and how you and your team achieved the win.

In Kisor v. Wilkie, we asked the Supreme Court to overrule or limit Auer [v. Robbins] deference. After granting our petition, the court unanimously reversed the court of appeals, delivering an unequivocal victory for our client. Although the justices were divided as to whether Auer should be formally overruled, all agreed with our fundamental point that Auer deference—especially in our case—was badly broken and required significant reform. Justice [Neil] Gorsuch said that Auer deference is now a “paper tiger.” Kisor will require agencies to act with greater predictability and transparency.
