Recapping the 2020-21 Fantasy League Season

Once again the Gavels of the State Public Defender’s Office ended the season atop the fantasy league standings—despite the effort of the Competition Committee to bolster the other teams by adding more law firms to their rosters for the 2020-21 campaign.  These teams, notably the Affirmed and the Writs, did in fact score much higher than they did in 2019-20, but the Gavels proceeded to win more of their cases this year than they did in any previous season, cruising to yet another league title.  They were led by Dustin Haskell, who contributed 20 points from favorable outcomes in two cases.

Although none of the other teams could match the Gavels’ depth, their rosters included individual firms that turned in impressive performances recognized at this month’s awards banquet.  They included the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty which delivered 22 points to the Writs, followed by the pair of Kasdorf, Lewis & Swietlik (20 points) and Axley Brynelson (19 points) which paced the Affirmed.  Nearly all of the Citations’ scoring came from Troutman Pepper (20 points) and Godfrey & Kahn (18 points), while Husch Blackwell led the Waivers with 18 points.

The following table provides the final totals for each team and every individual law firm.
