Mar 10, 2017, 00:40
President Donald Trump has nominated Noel Francisco as the administration's top Supreme Court attorney, with Francisco, if he's confirmed, now poised to file an influential legal brief in the pending New Jersey sports betting case.
He previously worked at the Jones Day Law Firm, wherein he argued three high-profile cases in the Supreme Court.
Francisco was also a White House lawyer from 2001 to 2003, and legal counsel for the Justice Department from 2003 to 2005.

It is hard to overstate the importance of the solicitor general's role in conducting the business of the high court.
The role of Solicitor General doesn't usually make too many headlines, but that's nearly certain to change in the next four years. The justices often call on the officer to offer the government's views on important statutory and constitutional issues affecting the whole country, and the solicitor general's answer usually looks beyond the politics of the moment and to the broader interests of the U.S. He represented former Virginia Gov. White House counsel Don McGahn and deputy counsel Gregory Katsas also hail from the firm, among others. Additionally, Francisco worked in the Office of Counsel to the President as Associate Counsel during the George W. Bush administration.
