Peter Michaud Admitted to US Supreme Court Bar in Historic LGBT Swearing-In Ceremony


On Tuesday, January 22, Lindquist & Vennum Partner Peter Michaud, along with 30 LGBT attorneys from around the country, was admitted to the bar of the United States Supreme Court during an historic swearing-in ceremony performed, during session, by the Supreme Court Justices. Attorneys were selected based upon personal statements and were sponsored by the National LGBT Bar Association. This was the first time in history that the National Bar Association took part in the mass swearing-in ceremony, which occurs most days the court is in session. 

The event was covered by major news media and was attended by an overflowing courtroom of guests and attendees who wanted to take part in the event (including LGBT district and appellate court judges, congressmen and congresswomen, and the Solicitor General). A reception was held after court. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was in attendance and addressed the group of attorneys and guests about historic cases.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
