O’Melveny’s partner Walter Dellinger has been chosen to be a witness for the Democrats in the proposed lawsuit against President Obama. Dellinger has been quoted in the New York Times, Huffington Post, and the Associated Press, among others, about the implications this type of lawsuit could have on the balance of federal powers. “Allowing this kind of suit by the Congress every time there is a disagreement with how a president carried out the law would be a radical liberalization of the role that the judiciary had played,” Dellinger said in the articles.
