Mayer Brown achieves US Supreme Court win for pro bono client
11 December 2015
Mayer Brown achieved an important victory in the US Supreme Court for pro bono client Stephen M. Shapiro in Shapiro v. McManus. The court ruled 9-0 that a case filed by Mr. Shapiro challenging Maryland’s 2011 redistricting map is entitled to be heard by a three-judge federal district court. Mr. Shapiro argued that a single-judge district court prematurely threw out his challenge to the state’s redrawing of its congressional districts.
Mayer Brown Litigation & Dispute Resolution associate Michael Kimberly (Washington DC) prepared and delivered the written and oral arguments.
