Stuart M. Gerson, a Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Health Care & Life Sciences practices, in the firm’s Washington, DC, and New York offices, was quoted in Yahoo News, in “Trump’s Comments Likely to Cause Heartburn for US Lawyers,” by Eric Tucker.
Following is an excerpt:
Stuart Gerson, who was the Justice Department’s civil division chief under President George H.W. Bush and was the acting attorney general in the early days of the Clinton administration, said although Trump’s comments haven’t been helpful, federal lawyers still have strong legal arguments for the scope of presidential authorities — arguments that can outweigh Trump’s public comments in importance and relevance.
“They have a job in representing the United States and giving a fair argument to whatever issues are involved, and I think that’ll be the case here,” Gerson said.
