  •  Briefs often written by underlings (3+ / 0-)

    I know nothing about the Texas Solicitor General's office, but in most offices -- whether large law firms, or state AG, or whatever -- much of the research and writing is done by smart overworked recent law graduates, either law clerks or junior hires, and then the top guy (or gal) gets top billing and signs off on it (with or without reading it), and does the oral argument. That's also true of court opinions in many courts.

    •  True. However... (0+ / 0-)

      if you read several of his briefs, just like when you read Roberts, Ginsburg, or any of the "biggies", the writing style for each is unmistakeable.  Cruz was also known as a top-notch oral advocate.  Many conservatives saw him as a future jurist, not a politician.  Maybe he should have gone that route, because I'm just not seeing him have the chops yet for the whole politics gig.

      Cake or DEATH? Oh, I'll have cake, please.
