Donald Verrilli confirmed as new US Solicitor General

As reported in this post at The BLT, the United States now official has a new top lawyer:

Senators voted 72-16 to confirm Donald Verrilli Jr. as the next U.S. solicitor general. The vote came after senators reached an agreement to avoid a vote on a threatened filibuster, moving directly to a final confirmation vote.

Congrats to Solicitor Verrilli, and good luck with all the (seemingly never-ending) ACCA litigation you now get to enjoy in your new job.
