Fantasy League Update

The first eight supreme-court decisions of the 2018-19 fantasy-league season brought points to all five teams, with the Gavels and the Writs—the two preseason favorites—leading the way. The Gavels of the State Public Defender’s Office got off to a blistering start with 15 points (from a brief, oral argument, and favorable outcome in State v. Reed and a brief and oral argument in State v. Wiskerchen), while the Writs displayed early strength with 10 points from Habush Habush & Rottier (brief, oral argument, and favorable decision in Engelhardt v. City of New Berlin).

The Affirmed picked up six points (from a brief and oral argument by Kasdorf Lewis & Swietlik and an amicus brief by Stafford Rosenbaum, both in Engelhardt v. City of New Berlin), followed by the Waivers with three points from von Briesen & Roper (a brief but no oral argument in SECURA Insurance) and the Citations with a point from Godfrey & Kahn (an amicus brief in SECURA Insurance).
