O’Melveny’s Dellinger Profiled in Five-Part SCOTUSblog Interview

August 31, 2015 SCOTUSblog featured O’Melveny & Myers partner Walter Dellinger in its latest edition of “SCOTUSblog On Camera.”  In the five-part video interview, Dellinger discusses his background and career, including his life in the White House and in the Justice Department, as head of the Office of Legal Counsel and as Solicitor General.  “The greatest difference when you are arguing as Solicitor General is that the United States is such a repeat player, that it has such long-term institutional interests, that you don’t necessarily want to win every case at all costs because what you might argue in one case might be adverse to the government’s interest in another case,” he said in the interview.

Dellinger is a member of O’Melveny’s Appellate Practice and resides in the Firm’s Washington, DC office.
