Good morning and welcome to Supreme Court Brief. There has been no word yet on the court’s plans for reopening its building or holding in-person arguments. As we wait, we take a look at the “bargain” that Hogan Lovells gave Philadelphia in last term’s clash between religious rights and the city’s non-discrimination rule. Former SCOTUS clerks Steven Lehotsky and Scott Keller have boosted their new firm’s bench with another former Supreme Court clerk—their fifth. And we spoke with former assistant to the U.S. solicitor general Morgan Ratner about her move to Sullivan & Cromwell.

Thanks for reading and your feedback is welcome and appreciated. Contact Marcia Coyle at [email protected].
