Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the Supreme Court Brief. This week, we’re taking a look at the Supreme Court’s latest orders list, which included the justices taking up an admiralty dispute. Meanwhile tax attorneys are already altering their tax penalty litigation strategies in the wake of last week’s ruling in Bittner. Plus, we delve into a dissent and statement from Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch criticizing the so-called “offended observer” theory of standing. 

As always, thanks for reading and we welcome feedback and tips. You may contact Avalon Zoppo at [email protected] and follow her on Twitter @AvalonZoppo. You can find Brad Kutner at [email protected] and @bradkutner.
