Gregory Garre has been nominated by Bush to be the next Solicitor General after Paul Clement and Thomas Hungar announced almost simultaneously that they were both leaving... Now Paul is gone and Thomas is leaving soon. In 2004 I argued before the Supreme Court in a civil rights case and the solicitors office filed a brief in support of my position and was given argument time. Greg Garre was the assistant solicitor who argued for the office. Greg did a good job and is a nice guy unfortunately he has been just a tad too willing to argue an unrestrained view of executive power... which is too bad... he should remember the Constitution comes before the President.
(by the way I won the case I argued up there unanimously... not bad for a civil rights case!)
