US Bancorp. Mortgage Company v. Bonner Mall Partnership
Our amicus brief in U.S. Bancorp. Mortgage Co. helped persuade the U.S. Supreme Court to unanimously overturn the federal courts’ practice of routine vacatur – wiping out lower court decisions when they are appealed and the case then settles. The practice allowed wealthy, repeat litigants to control the development of the law by effectively buying and destroying judicial decisions.
