Welcome Above the Law readers!
Georgetown 3L Mike Sacks had a mission this semester. He wanted to be first in line for every major argument at the Supreme Court. He’s been documenting his adventures on his blog First One @ One First.
This is made easier for him because he has no morning classes and lives on Capitol Hill, a few minutes away from the High Court. He should also have camping experience from his undergrad days at Duke, but unlike me, he somehow avoided spending time in Krzyzewskiville.
Maybe if he had paid his dues tenting out for basketball games, he would have succeeded in his mission. But no. Some Californians derailed him this week, as documented by the New York Times.
Fair enough, Kash.
Keep a lookout at ATL tomorrow next week:
Sacks will be writing a post for us on how to tailgate score a SCOTUS seat. If you have any specific questions, shoot us an email.
Until then, I must hunker down and get my oral argument write-up readied for the ABA Journal tonight, and maybe even get a Supreme Court Side Walk clip posted on here before my body shuts down.
