Appellate Advocacy Blog Weekly Roundup June 8, 2018


Each week, the Appellate Advocacy Blog Weekly Roundup presents a few tidbits of news and Twitter posts from the past week concerning appellate advocacy. As always, if you see something during the week that you think we should be sure to include, feel free to send Dan a quick email or a message on Twitter (@Daniel_L_Real).


The big appellate news this week was the Supreme Court's release of its opinion in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case.  If you follow appellate practice and appellate news, you've likely seen substantial coverage in a variety of media and commentary.  Here are a couple of good ones, just in case:

Supreme Court opinion:  HERE

SCOTUSblog Coverage:  HERE

How Appealing Coverage:  HERE

There were a few tidbits around the internet this week that provide some practice tips and pointers:

Popular #AppellateTwitter judge @JudgeDillard posted a link to an article about his thoughts on judges engaging through social media.  It's definitely worth the read.

At Volokh Conspiracy there was an article on "Tips on Inviting Law Professors to Write Amicus Briefs."

Friday was designated #AppellateTwitter day, and one @Judge_Leben hosted a thread offering Twitter users the opportunity to "Ask an Appellate Judge" questions about appellate practice.  It's a good one to check out.
