Why toil in anonymity?
Today's DJ Friday Podcasts program, titled SCOTUS FOCUS, features Sidley Austin (L.A. office) appellate lawyer Mark Haddad (former clerk for Justice William Brennan) on "unique strategies and novel approaches an appellate counselor does well to ply when trying matters before the country's high court."

Also of note, see the MetNews article C.A. Affirms $1.25 Millions Settlement of Action Against Raiders, about Lacy T. v. Oakland Raiders, and in particular questions why the case caption and opinion doesn't use the names of the cheerleaders, and (courtesy of Brad Pauley) quotes Yellowbook sections 5:9 and 5:11.
