So what is going on at the Solicitor General's office?

Last week we learned that Paul Clement, the solicitor general, unexpectedly announced his resignation effective June 2nd (which he no doubt hopes will be before the supreme court announces its decision in the Gitmo cases)... now we have learned that the deputy solicitor general Thomas Hungar actually announced his resignation first but that announcement was not released until today.... all we know about Hungar's departure is that it will be "soon."
Is it just me or do others think there is more to this than just wanting to spend time with their families?
