On Wednesday, in a 7-to-2 ruling, the Supreme Court found in favor of Harrison's client, asylum seeker Jean Marc Nken of Cameroon. At issue in the case was the standard that courts should apply in granting requests to stay deportation orders.
Harrison told us she was surprised by the overall vote, but not that she won. "I really thought we were right about this statute," she said.
