KUDOS, INDEED: Congratulations, and then some, are due to my classmate and good friend (and, really, he does read this blog) Dave Gossett, who won a 9-0 decision today in his first case argued before the U.S. Supreme Court.

One of the youngest advocates to appear before the Court, Dave's victory in Central Laborers' Pension Fund v. Heinz is a victory on behalf of workers nationwide, as the Court held that employers are barred from cutting back on pensions for workers who retire early from one job, then later find other employment. Even Nino was forced to agree with Dave that a worker's expectations cannot be messed with like this. That's advocacy of the highest order, and this is just the first of many such victories to come.
