Supreme Court nominee John Roberts argued 39 cases before the Supreme Court. This is his Supreme Court oral argument in a case NCAA v. Smith, which he argued January 20, 1999. John Roberts was an attorney with the Washington-based law firm Hogan and Hartson when he argued the case. The argument was presented on audio tape with still images of the participants. Justice Thomas did not speak.

The case NCAA v. Smith questions whether the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s receiving dues from federally funded member institutions subjects it to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. John Roberts argued for the NCAA and won the case in a unanimous decision. The Court ruled that dues paid to the NCAA from recipients of federal funds are not enough to subject the association to suit under Title IX. close
