Attorney Mark J. Sarro, a graduate of Fordham University School of Law who earned his commission in the United States Army through Fordham College's Reserve Officer's Training Corp., was admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court on June 13, 2011.
At 10 AM, all nine Supreme Court justices emerged from behind the iconic red curtains that adorn the court chamber and took their seats. Four decisions were announced by the Court before Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. granted a motion to admit Sarro and the other new members of the bar. Clerk of the Court, William Suter, swore in Sarro and the other new bar members individually. Prior to the ceremony, Suter, who noticed Sarro's, “Airborne Ranger” lapel pin, exchanged common experiences with Mark about their service at Fort Benning, Georgia and Fort Knox, Kentucky. After the ceremony, Justice Sonia Sotomayer congratulated Mark in the East Conference Room of the Supreme Court.
Sarro, who is a founding member of the firm of Raneri, Light & Sarro, PLLC, based in White Plains, NY said, “I look forward to continuing my service to my community, state and country by one day arguing a case before the nation's highest court. The event can only be classified as exciting coupled with a deep sense of responsibility. It was a rare privilege to occupy the same room with all the members of one third of this nation's government. The decisions of the nine people who occupy the bench in front of me affect the daily lives of all Americans. I am proud to be a member of the bar that will assist them in making those determinations in the future.”
