A teaching moment - Still more on: "Is it usual to use 'big poster/charts' in oral arguments?"

Updating yesterday's ILB entry, which quoted the Supreme Court's Dec. 31st order:

Both parties are directed not to bring any physical exhibits to the oral argument.
I'm watching the oral argument in Wade v. Terex-Telelect right now. Surprisingly it began with attorney Scott Montross displaying a large chart, and then directing the Court's attention to his law partner Mr. Townsend, who was at the side of the chamber with the actual large bucket liners. Montross explains that for 15 years he has been trying to explain how this bucket setup works.
