Today was my school's final round of the moot court competition [sidebar for those who are unfamiliar with moot courts... teams of two draft briefs and conduct an oral argument in front of a panel of judges or justices in a mock appellate court]. The competition is always a big deal, and my school likes to get celebrity judges when they can. This year, one of the judges was actually a Supreme Court Justice! Justice Elena Kagan, the newest member of the Supreme Court! She asked some tough questions that the competitors had to answer. Whew!

I have a sort of SCOTUS siting tally going on. There are nine justices on the Supreme Court, and I have now seen 3 of them, bringing me to one third! I've actually seen almost all of them because I have gone to the Supreme Court to hear arguments before, but I am only counting justices that I see in real life, and not in the courtroom.
