Ogden is DAG, Kagan Solicitor General, Perrelli Associate AG
By Mary Jacoby | January 5, 2022 10:50 pm

No suprises here. Obama announced David Ogden, the Wilmer Cutler partner leading his DOJ transition team, to be Deputy Attorney General. Harvard Law School Dean Elena Kagan will be the nation’s first woman Solicitor General. Tom Perrelli, who was managing editor of the Harvard Law Review when Obama was its president, will head the Civil Division. He’s now managing partner of Jenner & Block’s DC office and a specialist in intellectual property. All will require Senate confirmation.

Ogden will be in charge of managing the day-to-day operations of Justice’s more than 100,000 employees. He is a former Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division under Clinton and also served as then-AG Janet Reno’s chief of staff.

As for Kagan, former Solicitor General Ted Olson said Kagan’s always been “very gracious” to students with conservative views at Harvard. Brad Berenson in the same WaPo article calls them all pros. Kagen served in the Clinton White House as an associate counsel to the president from 1995 to 1999 and as Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy and Deputy Director of the Domestic Policy Council from 1997 to 1997.
