Covert'', which represents the only time a lawyer lost in the Supreme Court of the United States but prevailed on rehearing. That case was particularly notable in that it established that "no agreement with a foreign nation [i.e., no treaty] can confer power on the Congress, or on any other branch of Government, which is free from the restraints of the Constitution."

He is also noted for arguing for the victorious appellants in the racial discrimination case ''Moose Lodge No. 107 v. Irvis'', , and the losing appellant in the reapportionment case ''Roman v. Sincock'', . " Provided by Wikipedia
