More and More Amicus Briefs Being Filed in the Supremes

The Supreme Court report contained in the November 2007 ABA Journal (copy not available on line) contains an article about the increasing use of amicus briefs in the Supreme Court by major law firms. This is due in part, says the article, because the Court is agreeing to hear less cases. Quoting Professor Kathleen Sullivan, the article states "with the shrinking docket, there are too may Supreme Court lawyers chasing too few cases on the merit."

Something to think about.
