Can you name the U.S. Solicitor General? Law360 has Supreme Court Bar Baffled By ‘Unusual’ Delay in SG Selection: “President Joe Biden has yet to name his permanent choice to the position of solicitor general six months into his first year in office, leaving court watchers and U.S. Supreme Court practitioners to speculate what’s causing the hold-up for one of the top posts in the U.S. Department of Justice. … Once thought to be the leading candidate for the job, California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger reportedly turned down the offer near the start of Biden’s presidency.”
Also of note: The Multicultural Bar Alliance of Southern California will have a virtual reception on August 11 from 5 to 6 p.m. featuring Justice Goodwin Liu. Details here.
