Welcome to Supreme Court Brief! August is gone and we are just 20 days away from the justices’ big summer conference. There is still no eagerly-anticipated word from the court on oral arguments. Meanwhile, we speak with the latest Supreme Court veteran advocate to chair a high court practice, this one at Haynes and Boone. A Harvard law journal has some praise for Justice Clarence Thomas on his 30th year on the high court. We also take a look at the law review article and author behind Texas’ six-week abortion ban. Plus: Justice O’Connor’s life takes center stage in a new PBS biography.
