Congratulations to Attorney Dale V. Stephenson for being admitted to the Supreme Court of the United States
On Thursday, May 18, 2023, Wake County District Court Judge Ashleigh P. Dunston presented a motion in open court for Dale’s admittance, along with select attorneys of the Wake County Bar, to the Supreme Court of the United States. Chief Justice Roberts granted Judge Dunston’s motion, officially granting Dale admittance to practice law before the highest court in America.
Not only was May 18, 2023, a significant milestone in Dale’s legal career, it was also a special day for the Court. Prior to issuing the opinions of six landmark cases, Chief Justice Roberts read aloud a letter from the Court to retired Associate Justice Stephen Breyer, thanking him for commitment, rigor, and his 27 years of service to the American people. While smiling up at the nine Justices currently serving on the bench where he once sat, retired Associate Justice Breyer’s letter of gratitude was read in response.
Following recognition of retired Associate Justice Breyer, current Justices Gorsuch, Sotomayor, Thomas, and Chief Justice Roberts delivered opinions of the Court in six cases:
- Amgen Inc. v. Sanofi
- Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, Inc. v. Goldsmith
- Twitter, Inc. v. Taamneh
- Gonzalez v. Google LLC
- Ohio Adjutant General’s Dept. v. FLRA
- Polselli v. IRS
By being accepted to the Supreme Court of the United States Bar, she has met a superior standard. Ward Family Law Group is extremely proud of Dale and her accomplishment along with her continued dedication to the practice of law.
