How to get your case heard

July 11, 2013 | By | Reply More

What I just learned from Harper’s Index from the August 2013 issue of Harpers: The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear only 1% of all Petitions for Certiorari filed over the past three years. But, if the U.S. Chamber of Commerce files an amicus brief, there is a 32% chance that the U.S. Supreme Court will hear that case.

Those attorneys for the Chamber must be excellent brief writers . . .
