Debevoise associate proves herself a Supreme predicter

FantasyCourt.Com — the Web site where lawyers compete to predict the outcome of Supreme Court cases — today announced the winner of its 2002-2003 challenge. Kristin Kiehn, an associate with Debevoise & Plimpton in New York, will receive $2,500 for coming in first out of 516 participants. She correctly predicted the outcome in 47 of 79 Supreme Court cases and the split of justices in 16 of 79 cases. A news release said that Kiehn correctly predicted some of the year’s most important cases, including Grutter v. Bollinger, the University of Michigan affirmative action case, and Lawrence v. Texas, the challenge to Texas’ same-sex sodomy law. FantasyCourt.com is the creation of Robert J. Scott, a principal of Lawfinders Associates.
