The June 6th issue of the Washington Watch included a profile of Lisa Blatt, a partner at William & Connolly. Included in that profile is a discussion of her representation of clients before the United States Supreme Court.
On May 4, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court held its first argument outside of the Supreme Court Courtroom. The Justices were not in the same room and the entire argument was held by telephone and was available on C-SPAN.
That first argument was in the case of U.S. Patent and Trademark Office vs. Booking.com.
Lisa Blatt, who represented Booking.com, was arguing her 40th Supreme Court case, more than another woman in the history of the United States.
On June 30, 2020, the Supreme Court issued its decision in this case finding for Booking.com. Lisa Blatt’s record in the Court is now 37 wins, 2 losses and 1 decision pending.
