Appellate Practice News

Posted on: Oct 30, 2014

During a recent episode of "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver", the show gave a serious issue a funny spin: Getting more people to pay attention to Supreme Court actions by using dogs and cats as Justices. While it's true that Americans are, in general, less than informed about Supreme Court decisions, this funny solution may just work. Since its airing, John Oliver's video has gone viral, and more people continue using his tactics around the web.

With National Cat Day this week, it's only fitting to share this video with those who work in appellate law and with anyone who could use a good laugh. Click here to check it out.
