Appealing a Lawsuit to the US Supreme Court with Clint Vince Business Confidential Now with Hanna Hasl-Kelchner

    • Management

Appealing a lawsuit to the US Supreme Court seems to be very fashionable in certain circles. After all, no one likes to lose. Absolutely. No. One.
And that makes taking the case to the highest court in the land, for one more bite at the apple sound very appealing (no pun intended). But what factors should a business consider before taking the plunge?
This is a SPECIAL BONUS episode.
It's an interview with Clint Vince from the No Nonsense Legal Literacy Vault.
Some of you may remember that long before I started this podcast I did a series of teleseminars under the Ask the No Nonsense Lawyer banner where I invited prominent lawyers to share their insights about the US legal system that’s relevant to the business community.
Even though this interview originally aired in 2010, the mechanics, the planning, and factors to consider when appealing a lawsuit to the US Supreme Court continue to be relevant both now and into the future. 
What's also striking and why I released it as a "trick or treat" Halloween bonus is how scary it is to realize how easily the composition of the court and the philosophical differences between the justices can swing decision and upend long standing legal precedent.
What You’ll Discover About Appealing a Lawsuit to the US Supreme Court:* What factors to consider when appealing a lawsuit to the US Supreme Court
* How changes in the court’s composition causes philosophical realignment that can impact your case
* The role seniority plays in the functioning of the court
* Why the Solicitor General of the United States can be helpful when appealing a lawsuit to the US Supreme Court
* And MUCH more!
