DuMont, currently a partner at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP, spent time at the Department of Justice including seven years as an Assistant to the Solicitor General. He also served as an Associate Deputy Attorney General focusing on computer crime, e-commerce and privacy. DuMont has argued 18 cases before the Supreme Court.

If confirmed, DuMont would replace Chief Judge Paul Michel, who is set to retire on May 31, 2010.
