Gibson Dunn’s Supreme Court Round-Up summarizes all of the Court’s decisions from the 2013 Term, the questions presented in cases that will be heard by the Court next Term, and other key developments on the Court’s docket. The Court issued opinions in 68 argued cases this Term, seven of which were argued by Gibson Dunn attorneys.
