Think Oral Arguments Are Important? Think Again, Justice Alito Says

Supreme Court litigators don’t speak much more than the justices during oral arguments, according to a first-hand participant, Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr.

Justices are “pushing 50 percent” in the number of words spoken at oral argument, Alito told lawyers at a Law Day gathering in St. Louis on Monday. As a result, he said, oral arguments aren’t all that important, despite a popular belief to the contrary. Instead, he asserted, what’s important are the briefs and the preparation.
