Chris Pitera, Esq. Sworn into U. S. Supreme Court
A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Chris Pitera, Attorney at Cannella & O’Neal, who was sworn into the U.S. Supreme Court this week, an honor that adds one more layer of integrity and shows he is at the top of his game!
This means he can now argue cases before the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. An attorney wishing to do so must first apply, submitting a Certificate of Good Standing (from the Virginia Supreme Court) which must confirm that the applicant has been practicing for at least three years, not been the subject of disciplinary action, and is of good moral and professional character. Once these boxes are checked, the applicant then must take an oath to uphold the law.
Chris’ sponsor made an oral motion for his admission and the motion was granted by Chief Justice John Roberts. All the justices except Breyer were present (Roberts, Kavanaugh, Alito, Ginsburg, Gorsuch, Kagan, Sotomayor).
