Waiting in Line for US Supreme Court Argument is a Profession.

If you want to sit in the gallery at the Supreme Court for oral argument in important cases, you may have to arrive early. That is, 48 hours early.  Students are paid by somebody with a strong interest in cases involving religious liberty to hold places.  There are only 250 seats available to the public on a first-come-first serve basis.  They were in line yesterday for oral argument on the case involving the war memorial cross.  The same group has been in line for similar cases, including the same-sex wedding cake case, according to an article posted by CNBC.
