Bloomberg Law: Supreme Court Taps Morgan Ratner to Argue Habeas Case

June 29, 2022

Morgan Ratner was asked by the Supreme Court to defend the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit's rationale in a habeas case, as reported by Bloomberg Law. The article notes that Morgan is one of only a handful of female attorneys asked by the Supreme Court to argue in support of a lower court opinion that the parties decline to defend. She previously argued eight cases before the Court during her time at the U.S. Solicitor General's Office before joining S&C's Supreme Court and Appellate practice. According to Bloomberg Law, Morgan is just the ninth woman of at least 69 appointments the court has made since 1926.
