Good morning and welcome to Supreme Court Brief! I’m Avalon Zoppo, pitching in on this newsletter after Marcia Coyle retired. The justices are back on the bench next week tackling hefty attorney-client privilege questions. This week, we’ll take a look at that case, and another the court is hearing later in the month. We also take a look at what Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. said in his year-end report—and maybe more importantly, what he didn’t say.
Thanks for reading. We welcome feedback and tips. Contact Avalon Zoppo at [email protected] and follow her on Twitter @AvalonZoppo.
