Washington Legal Foundation congratulates Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP partner Patricia A. Millett who, upon arguing for the Petitioner yesterday in Filarsky v. Delia, became only the second woman in U.S. history to argue 30 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

WLF has been honored to have Pattie participate in several Media Nosh programs on the Supreme Court and author a 2011 Legal Backgrounder, Crumbling Cornerstones: The Evolution Of Preemption Law In The Supreme Court’s 2010 Term. She shares the distinction of 30 Court arguments with Arnold & Porter LLP’s Lisa S. Blatt, who has also spoken at WLF media programs on the Supreme Court and authored the “majority opinion” in a WLF On the Merits publication on Williamson v. Mazda Motor of America, Inc.
