On November 2, 2020, partner Sarah Harris presented oral argument to the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of petitioner Manfredo Salinas in Salinas v. U.S. Railroad Retirement Board. The question presented was whether Railroad Retirement Board decisions denying requests to reopen prior benefits determinations are subject to judicial review. The case marked Sarah’s first argument before the Court; it was also Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s first day on the bench. Sarah clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas, and before joining the firm, she served as a Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel at the United States Department of Justice.
