FIRST ONE @ ONE FIRST

Pre-Needling

Posted in Anticipation by Mike Sacks on January 13, 2010

Back home now.  Feeling is coming back to my toes.

  • Lawyers and law students dominated this morning’s line for American Needle Inc. v. NFL.
  • The line started building in the 4am hour, earlier than the lines on Monday and Tuesday.
  • I was surprised that there were not more lay linegoers today, given the publicity American Needle has received – especially from Drew Brees’s op/ed in the Washington Post last Sunday.
  • To my great benefit, an expert sports law practitioner sat second in line.  As the clock struck 4am, he laid out three possible routes the Court may take in deciding American Needle, which I will outline in my afternoon write-up.

Be sure to come back later today for my argument recap and tonight for my Vox Populi column.

Time to suit up and get back to the Court!
