O’Melveny’s Dellinger Quoted in Slate on Supreme Court Silence

October 16, 2014 O’Melveny & Myers partner and former acting Solicitor General Walter Dellinger was quoted in the October 16, 2014, Slate article, “Injunction Junction,” which discusses the Supreme Court’s recent trend of deciding some of “the most urgent social and ideological issues facing the country” by way of stay, unsigned order, injunction, and wordless denials of cert petition.  Dellinger told the publication it’s not unusual in an election season to see efforts to change statewide voting procedures blocked or accepted without explanation at the high court.  “This is a time of unprecedented and profound change,” Dellinger explained in the article, adding “[y]ou have a country that is polarized in ways it has never been, and legislatures willing to make two absolutely unprecedented changes to our legal systems.”

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