Good morning and welcome to Supreme Court Brief! The justices took some steps toward returning to business as usual by issuing an order on Monday rescinding most of the accommodations for filing documents during the worst of the pandemic. It was a reminder that the start of the new term is little more than two months away. In the meantime, an effort is underway to promote female advocates in arguments before the high court. We have the details. As the wait continues for the justices’ decision on whether to hear the affirmative action challenge to Harvard College, a Vanderbilt law professor has an empirical study calling for fewer, not more restrictions on the use of race in admissions policies. And scroll down to see what a committee of SCOTUS advocates told the presidential commission on the Supreme Court about reform proposals.

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