O’Melveny’s Dellinger Quoted in Los Angeles Times on US Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr.’s Argument in Health Care CaseMay 14, 2012 O’Melveny & Myers LLP partner and former acting solicitor general Walter Dellinger was quoted in the May 11, 2012, Los Angeles Times article, “Healthcare case capped a rough year for solicitor general.” The article reports that while some have criticized US Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr.’s performance during his Supreme Court oral argument on behalf of the Obama administration in the health care case, many lawyers who are veterans of the Court have come to his defense.
"The criticism was unwarranted. Read the transcript. Don made all the right arguments," Dellinger said.
Dellinger is a member of O'Melveny's Appellate Practice and resides in the Firm's Washington, DC office.
