Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas were featured guests at a dinner sponsored by those who have business before the court.

The lawyer who will stand before the court and argue that the law should be thrown out is likely to be Paul Clement, who served as U.S. solicitor general during the George W. Bush administration.
