Law Firm Fantasy League

This week’s harvest of decisions was unusually bountiful—especially for the Writs and the Waivers—and, as a result, the standings have tightened considerably.  The long-dormant Writs led the scoring, with 16 points from Pines Bach (for a brief, oral argument, and favorable outcome in Kathleen Papa v. DHS and a brief, oral argument, and partially-favorable outcome in Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Local 1 v. Robin Vos) and 10 points from the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (for a brief, oral argument, and mostly-favorable outcome in Nancy Bartlett v. Tony Evers and an amicus brief in Service Employees).

Meanwhile, three different firms on the Waivers contributed points: Husch Blackwell (7 points for a brief and mostly-favorable outcome in Service Employees), Hawks Quindel (4 points for a brief and partially-favorable outcome in Service Employees), and Quarles & Brady (1 point for an amicus brief in Kathleen Papa). 

Godfrey & Kahn rounded out the scoring with 5 points (for a brief and oral argument in WSBU v. Joel Brennan), thereby moving the Citations up in the standings.
