Senator Ted Cruz Files Amicus in Hobby Lobby as Counsel of Record

January 28th, 2014

Huh. When’s the last time a sitting U.S. Senator was listed as “counsel of record” on an amicus brief before the Supreme Court? As best as I can tell, there are no other lawyers listed on the brief. It is signed:

Respectfully submitted, TED CRUZ Counsel of Record UNITED STATES SENATOR 185 Dirksen Senate Office Building Washington, D.C. 20510 [email protected] (202) 224-5922

Update: The Senior senator from Texas, John Cornyn, filed at least two briefs as counsel of record in Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdown, and Rumsfield v. Padilla.
