Morning Docket: 06.26.17

* Kasowitz Benson may have gotten a minor “Trump bump” from other associates in the most recent edition of the Vault 100 law firm rankings thanks to Marc Kasowitz’s representation of the president, but the firm’s own associates don’t seem to be too impressed. In fact, they listed “Trump” as one of the things they dislike most about the firm. [DealBook / New York Times]

* Despite protests from her lawyers that a deposition would “interfere with her ability to perform her duties [as an unpaid advisor] at the White House,” a judge has ruled that Ivanka Trump may be deposed in the IP infringement suit that was filed by Aquazzura over the First Daughter’s look-alike shoes. [CNN Money]

* No matter how many times we think we’ve dispelled this rumor, it keeps rearing its ugly head again and again. Word is somehow still on the street that Justice Anthony Kennedy will retire from the Supreme Court, as early as this Term or next. But… what if it actually turns out to be true that the justice who holds abortion rights in his hands will be leaving the bench? [Newsweek]

* Three months have passed since Trinh Huynh, an in-house attorney at UPS, was gunned down during her commute, and her accused killer has now been indicted on murder charges. Raylon Browning may have targeted Huynh, as surveillance footage indicated that he was following her. [Daily Report]

* After 69 years as a journalist — 58 of them spent reporting on the high court — Lyle Denniston, the dean of the Supreme Court press corps, will be officially hanging up his press pass after today. He’ll be teaching a course at Baltimore Law this fall, but after that, he has no set plans. Congratulations on a remarkable career! You’ll be missed.
