Norm’s lawyer got knocked around pretty good by the Minnesota Supreme Court justices in this morning’s oral argument.
Late Update: Franken’s lawyer got some grilling, too, though not of the same caliber. The smart money all along has been on the Supreme Court ruling for Franken, and nothing happened today to change that assessment, our Eric Kleefeld tells me. If anything, it reinforced it.
Later Update: Coleman’s lawyer got one more chance to convince the Supreme Court at the end of oral arguments. It doesn’t sound like he made much headway there either, though let me stipulate that reading oral arguments for signs of how a court will rule is an inexact science at best.
