Tobacco Case Tries to Ignite a Comeback
July 28, 2010, Tony Mauro, The National Law Journal
In his 20-plus years of practicing before the Supreme Court, Alan Untereine has never filed a petition for rehearing after the Court has ruled against or declined to review a case before it. Such petitions are almost never granted, and often represent a client's futile last-gasp attempt to get the high court's attention.
But Untereiner, name partner in D.C.'s Robbins, Russell, Englert, Orseck, Untereiner & Sauber, filed his first such petition July 23, and he thinks he has a good chance of success.
