Bloomberg BNA Quotes Steve Klepper on Supreme Court’s Recent Split Decisions

Kramon & Graham appellate attorney Steve Klepper was quoted in a March 29, 2016 Bloomberg BNA article on the Supreme Court’s recent divided rulings. An equally divided Court means the ruling sets no nationwide precedent and leaves the lower-court ruling as the final decision in the case. In SCOTUS 4-4 Decisions Send Mixed Messages, Steve explains that there is precedent for Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. to publicly voice his opposition to the “politicization of the confirmation process,” and “the effect of the vacancy on the Court’s work.”
