Two Massachusetts lawyers see their Supreme dreams come true

For two Massachusetts appellate lawyers, Wednesday, Dec. 1 won't be erased from their memories for the rest of their lives.

That day Massachusetts Attorney General's Office Appellate Division Chief Cathryn A. Neaves and Committee for Public Counsel Services staff attorney David J. Nathanson appeared before the United States Supreme Court, an opportunity most lawyers only dream of. Of about 7,000 cases on the docket each term, the Supreme Court grants plenary review and oral argument to only about 100 cases.
