Paul Clement

Clement & Murphy PLLC

Former Solicitor General of the United States, Paul Clement has argued over 100 cases before the United States Supreme Court, more than any other living practitioner at least in the last quarter century.  He is expected to argue one of the most significant cases before the Court in the 2023-24 term challenging the Chevron doctrine of presumptive administrative agency deference.  

Among other prominent cases, Clement argued McConnell v. FEC (upholding soft money limits on political contributions), Tennessee v. Lane (finding the ADA constitutional in requiring public entities to accommodate disabled persons), U.S. v. Booker (holding unconstitutional strict judicial adherence to the federal sentencing guidelines without considering other factors), MGM v. Grokster (file sharing service in direct violation of copyright), NFIB v. Sebelius (holding, inter alia, for the first time in history that federal spending dictates are unconstitutional if coercive), Burwell v. Hobby Lobby (private employer need not supply contraceptives under RFRA), Epic Systems v. Lewis (employee arbitration agreements requiring individuated claims are not amenable to class-type treatment under the NLRA), Rucho v. Common Cause (partisan gerrymandering is a political question not typically subject to judicial review), Facebook v. Duguid (text message is not equivalent to autodialing under autodialing statute), and TransUnion v. Ramirez (concrete harm must be shown to have standing to sue civilly under Fair Credit Reporting Act).  Clement also has served pro bono in many cases, e.g., Kennedy v. Bremerton (high school football coach cannot be constrained from personal religious observance after games).
