"Former Solicitor General Feels the Wrath of Senators": At "The BLT: The Blog of Legal Times," David Ingram has a post that begins, "Democratic senators have for months accused the U.S. Supreme Court of stifling civil lawsuits. They've cited, most recently, the Court's 5-4 decision this year in Ashcroft v. Iqbal, which added a new plausibility requirement for lawsuits. Today, in sometimes tense exchanges, those senators went head-to-head with Gregory Garre, the former solicitor general who argued and won the case almost exactly a year ago."
