Attorney Cynthia Orr Discusses Odds of U.S. Supreme Court Granting Certiorari

As reported by the American Bar Association Criminal Justice Section, attorney Cynthia Orr said there are persuasive ways to increases the odds of the U.S. Supreme Court granting certiorari. More than 7,000 petitions are filed each year, so most of the justices divide their initial reviews among the clerks each week on a random basis. The clerks then prepare memos recommending a denial or a grant.

Orr said there are ways to help earn a grant for certiorari, such as if the case involves the First Amendment or in cases involving the extent to which the government may become involved in personal and family decisions.
