Tax Prof at the Supreme Court

MurphyABA Journal, Have You Ever Had a Personal Encounter with a US Supreme Court Justice?:

Gonzaga University School of Law professor Ann Murphy wrote in to us last week about how she had an opportunity to talk with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor in her chambers.

"This came about due to a rather embarrassing mistake I made two years ago, when I included Justice Sotomayor in a 'reply all' email," Murphy wrote. "When I realized I had made an error, I apologized and she could not have been nicer about it." The two began swapping emails, and Sotomayor invited Murphy to see her at the Supreme Court when Murphy was in Washington, D.C. for a conference.
