Given the nature of the COVID pandemic, this year's Legislature adopted unique rules for virtual proceedings to halt the continuing spread of the virus. Displeased with the rules, members of the Republican leadership sued Speaker Egolf and the Legislative Council asserting that the rules were unconstitutional. Ms. Dorsey, Thomas M. Hnasko and Micheal B. Browde represented Speaker Egolf, arguing to the Supreme Court that the Republican challenge was altogether improper: they sued the wrong players, they failed to meet the legal standard to bring suit, and the public interest in ensuring constitutional norms was at all times protected in the current Legislative rulemaking process. Congratulations to the legal team and Speaker Egolf on this victory.
