Thursday round-up

Briefly:

  • In Supreme Court Brief (subscription required), Tony Mauro interviews Sidley & Austin’s Jeffrey Green about criminal defense advocacy at the Court.
  • At Empirical SCOTUS, Adam Feldman analyzes the “network leading to Supreme Court clerkships”: “the judges the clerks worked for as well as at the law schools that the clerks attended.”
  • In The Washington Post, Amber Phillips reports on recent comments (followed by an apology) about the death of Justice Antonin Scalia by Ohio Senate candidate Ted Strickland.
  • In The Economist, Steven Mazie suggests that “there are a host of reasons Republicans may hesitate to give the nod to” Chief Judge Merrick Garland, the president’s nominee to fill the vacancy left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, “before Mrs Clinton takes office next January, should she defeat Mr Trump in November.”
  • In The Huffington Post, Catherine Pearson marks the twenty-third anniversary of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s swearing-in with “23 quotes that celebrate Justice Ginsburg’s gift for real talk.”
