Fantasy League Update

Today’s trio of decisions (Sonja Blake v. Debra Jossart; State v. Leopoldo R. Salas Gayton; and Dennis D. Dufour v. Progressive Classic Ins. Co.) brought points to four of the league’s five teams and produced multiple changes in the standings.

The Waivers made the biggest gain—10 points from von Briesen & Roper (a brief, oral argument, and favorable outcome in Dufour) and 1 point from Quarles & Brady (an amicus brief in Gayton).  With these 11 points, the Waivers moved into second place, closing the gap between them and Gavels of the State Public Defender’s Office, who collected 5 points (a brief and oral argument in Gayton).

Only the Affirmed did not participate in the scoring, and as a result they were passed by the Writs, who vaulted from the cellar by adding 7 points to their total—5 points from Legal Action of Wisconsin (a brief and oral argument in Blake v. Jossart) and 2 points from Habush Habush & Rottier (an amicus brief and oral argument in Dufour).  The Citations rounded out the scoring with 2 points from Godfrey & Kahn for an amicus brief and oral argument in Dufour—not enough, however, to maintain possession of second place, which they yielded to the surging Waivers.
