Represented Prominent Federal Official Against Hostile Subpoena Threatened by U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in Publicized Investigation


  • Represented prominent federal official against hostile subpoena threatened by U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in publicized investigation; convinced both chief counsel of committee and minority counsel that officeholder would refuse to appear and threatened legal challenge to Senate subpoena authority based on well-researched but novel separation of powers arguments.
 
Result: Committee backed down; no subpoena issued.
