Update from the Steps of the U.S. Supreme Court

Posted by Cara Solomon

Just got word from Daniel Saver JD ’12: everyone on the clinical team made it into the U.S. Supreme Court for oral argument on Kiobel.  Given all the buzz around this case, there were real questions as to whether that would happen. Susan, Tyler, and Marissa Vahlsing JD ’11 already had tickets.  But it took several hours of waiting for Daniel, Yonina Alexander JD ’12, Poppy Alexander JD ’12, and Russell Kornblith JD ’12, to get theirs.

Four individuals smile outside the Supreme Court. They wear heavy coats, indicating it is winter.
Poppy Alexander, Russell Kornblith, Yonina Alexander, and Meghan Morris wait in line outside the U.S. Supreme Court, hoping to get tickets to hear oral arguments in Kiobel.

According to an email from Daniel, the group settled into line last night around 11:30 pm.  Minutes later, by chance, they ran into Meghan Morris JD ’08, whom Daniel described in the email—with exclamation points, of course—as an HRP legend.  Nobody slept last night, he said—they were huddled together for warmth.

Stay tuned for more Kiobel updates.
