Merely being admitted to a state bar does not qualify you to practice in the Supreme Court. You must be admitted to practice by the Supreme Court Bar. Once you have been admitted, you may argue any case regardless of original jurisdiction. The rules for admission to the Supreme Court bar are available at <http://www.supremecourtus.gov/bar/barinstructions.pdf>. The hardest thing for me when I was admitted was finding the sponsors because they themselves have to be members and know you personally. Don't forget to sign the $200.00 check.
