Does oral argument change a well-prepared judge’s mind? Rarely. What often happens, though, is that the judge is undecided at the time of oral argument (the case is a close one), and oral argument makes the difference. It makes the difference because it provides information and perspective that the briefs don’t and can’t contain.

—Justice Antonin Scalia and Bryan A. Garner

Oral Argument

Cases are rarely won or lost based on the oral argument. But sometimes they are. 

We invite you to view this video of an oral argument by Robert Glazier before the Supreme Court of Florida. The appeal concerned whether a principal of a religious school could sue her employer under a whistleblower statute. Minagorri v. Archdiocese of Miami.
