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!

    Mike – I’m enjoying your blog. I’m a morning running, so I thought I’d share something with you that I looked up yesterday for my own benefit: the first sunrise before 7am is set for 2/15. Who’s excited?!?

    Hey Mike, like the last commenter, I’m digging the blog too. Thoughtful, interesting & (sometimes) funny is a hard trifecta to hit. I was also pleasantly surprised by the amount of straight-up political science in the “foundational texts” bar. So I’m a fan.
