Partner Ian Heath Gershengorn Discusses the New US Supreme Court Term

Jenner & Block Partner Ian Heath Gershengorn discussed the new US Supreme Court term in a podcast sponsored by Law360 and in an article in the Washington Post. In the podcast, Mr. Gershengorn explained that the term could be a blockbuster, as a Supreme Court that is back to full strength takes on a number of important and highly charged issues.  In the Post article, he is quoted saying, “We’ve heard the last term described as the calm before the storm.  I think we may get to see the storm in this next sitting.”  The term started Monday, October 2, 2017.

Mr. Gershengorn is chair of the firm’s Appellate and Supreme Court Practice and is one of the nation’s premier Supreme Court and appellate advocates.   Before joining the firm in 2017, he served in the Office of the Solicitor General at the US Department of Justice, first as Principal Deputy Solicitor General and then as Acting Solicitor General of the United States, a position he held from June 2016 until the end of the Obama administration in January 2017.
