Fantasy League Update

The court did not file any decisions this past week—hence, no change in the standings.

Fantasy League Update

Two decisions filed this week produced significant changes in the standings.  The Citations moved out of the cellar, one point clear of the Waivers, with five points from Crivello Carlson (a brief and oral argument in Westmas v. Creekside Tree Service) and a point from Godfrey & Kahn (an amicus brief in Madison Teachers v. Scott).

However, the Writs eclipsed this performance on the strength of 10 points from Habush Habush & Rottier (a brief, oral argument, and favorable outcome in Westmas v. Creekside Tree Service) and five points from Pines Bach (a brief and oral argument in Madison Teachers v. Scott).  This vaulted the Writs all the way up the standings, past the Affirmed, into a first-place tie with the Gavels.
