Every day is different (I’m in BigLaw). This would be an easier question to answer if I was still in one of the boutique firms I worked for.

- answer email inquires (every day) from clients, attorneys, opc - motion work - discovery responses/propound (depends) -review client handbooks -E file - prepare answers to complaints - legal research -compile evidence to move cases to settlement - talk to clients about their cases etc. - communicate with experts etc. - review and revise settlement agreements It really varies.

I hate gerrymandering. Regardless of who does it, though research and statistical analysis points to republicans doing it more aggressively and to greater effect. What happens here? Does it just get left unchecked? Or it does until it goes too far? SCOTUS has already said partisan gerrymandering is beyond the reach of federal courts.
