Tom Fisher '91 Argues Before Supreme Court

Tom Fisher ’91, Solicitor General of Indiana, recently argued a case before the US Supreme Court. Greg Castanias ’87, who has also been in front of the highest court in the land, sent this report.

"Tom was marvelous today in a very difficult argument. From watching the six advocates in the two cases argued today, no one would have known that this was Tom’s first argument before the Court, because he seemed like he had done this a hundred times before — in fact, the only one of the six who even compared to Tom was Michael Dreeben of the U.S. Solicitor General’s office, who has argued at least 60 cases before the Court. Tom took on some rather aggressive questioning from Justice Scalia and completely held his own, debating with Justice Scalia (and other Justices) fine points of constitutional and pre-constitutional history, such as the trial of Sir Walter Raleigh."

Well done Tom!
