Kirkland partner Dale Cendali will make her second U.S. Supreme Court argument, nearly 17 years after her high court debut.
Cendali in 2003 argued and lost a copyright case involving Dwight D. Eisenhower’s wartime memoirs, “Crusade in Europe.” She’s hoping to have more luck when she takes the lectern this month in a decades-old trademark dispute involving “defense preclusion.”
Cendali, who appears Jan. 13, is one of just two women set to argue at the high court in January. That continues the gross disparity between male and female advocates appearing before the justices. Eighteen men will take the lectern during the court’s two-week argument sitting.
Along with Blatt, several high court veterans will be returning for their second argument of the term, including Morrison & Foerster’s Joseph Palmore, Hogan Lovells’ Neal Katyal, Jones Day’s Shay Dvoretzky, and Jenner & Block’s Adam Unikowsky.
