I report for Bloomberg Law on cases at the Supreme Court, following the cases through orders and oral arguments, all the way to decision days. I also keep track of the justices and what they’re up to around Washington, D.C. I’ve been a reporter with Bloomberg Law for the past eight years, where I’ve covered hot-button issues like abortion, immigration, and LGBT rights.
