June 1, 2018

As the Supreme Court continues its 2017 Term, Gibson Dunn’s Supreme Court Round-Up is summarizing the issues presented in the cases on the Court’s docket and the opinions in the cases the Court has already decided.  The Court has finished hearing arguments this Term, and we are awaiting decisions in 29 cases.  Gibson Dunn presented 3 oral arguments this Term, in addition to being involved in 11 cases as counsel for amici curiae.  Additionally, to date, the Court has granted certiorari in 18 cases for the 2018 Term, and Gibson Dunn is counsel for the petitioner in one of those cases.

Spearheaded by former Solicitor General Theodore B. Olson, the Supreme Court Round-Up keeps clients apprised of the Court’s most recent actions.  The Round-Up previews cases scheduled for argument, tracks the actions of the Office of the Solicitor General, and recaps recent opinions.  The Round-Up provides a concise, substantive analysis of the Court’s actions.  Its easy-to-use format allows the reader to identify what is on the Court’s docket at any given time, and to see what issues the Court will be taking up next.  The Round-Up is the ideal resource for busy practitioners seeking an in-depth, timely, and objective report on the Court’s actions.
