Welcome to Supreme Court Brief and the beginning of the October 2020 term. We expect another orders list this morning and then a quick return to telephonic arguments in cases postponed from last term because of the coronavirus pandemic. Nearly half of the lawyers arguing this week are making their Supreme Court debuts. Below, we tell you about them and the veteran advocates as well. The justices ramped up the stakes in the new term with seven grants from their long conference. Plus: Take a listen to our latest Legal Speak podcast about what’s ahead for SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett, the Senate Judiciary and the justices in the coming weeks.

Thanks for reading, and your feedback is welcome and appreciated. Contact Marcia Coyle at [email protected] and follow her on Twitter @MarciaCoyle.
