By the West Virginia definition, maybe I've argued before the U.S. Supreme Court

Via How Appealing, the West Virginia papers like this one are reporting that one of the candidates for the West Virginia Supreme Court is claiming that he has "argued" many cases before that court, even though he has only actually appeared for oral argument in one case.

So, whereas I thought I had argued only 8 appeals (two state and six federal), by this guy's logic I have actually argued more than 20, including my written arguments in amicus briefs (and a cert petition some years ago) filed with the U.S. Supreme Court.
