Law Firm Fantasy League

All five teams gained points from this week’s torrent of decisions, with the Writs and the Waivers leading the way.  The Writs collected ten points from the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty for a brief, oral argument, and favorable outcome in Sara Lindsey James v. Janel Heinrich (consolidated with WCRIS v. Janel Heinrich and St. Ambrose Academy, Inc. v. Joseph T. Parisi) and one point from Pines Bach for an amicus brief in the same case. 

The Waivers matched this total with five points from von Briesen & Roper (for a brief and oral argument in Southport Commons, LLC v. DOT), five points from Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren (for a brief and oral argument in Southwest Airlines Co. v. State of Wisconsin Department of Revenue), and one point from Boardman & Clark (for an amicus brief in Sara Lindsey James v. Janel Heinrich).

Hot on their heels came the Affirmed with 10 points from Borgelt, Powell, Peterson & Frauen for a brief, oral argument, and favorable outcome in Kemper Independence Insurance Company v. Ismet Islami.  Following some distance back were the Gavels of the State Public Defender’s Office (five points for a brief and oral argument in Eau Claire County Department of Human Services v. S. E.) and the Citations (one point each from Godfrey & Kahn and Cannon & Dunphy for a pair of amicus briefs in Kemper Independence Insurance Company v. Ismet Islami).
