Welcome to the first day of the new term! Up for argument on the first day is an attorney fee fight in which the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office asserts a right to collect those fees from disappointed patent applicants. We give a brief rundown of the arguments. After winning three criminal cases last term, the Northwestern Supreme Court Practicum is back, and we caught up with its director, Sarah Schrup, who is making her first high court argument. Plus: Michael Dreeben offers a quick take on the news advocates will “generally” get two minutes of uninterrupted time at the start of an argument. Thanks for reading, and your feedback is welcome and appreciated. Contact us at tmauro@alm.com and mcoyle@alm.com, and follow us on Twitter at @Tonymauro and @MarciaCoyle.
