Associated Press


A partner in Washington, D.C., firm Covington & Burling, Long will argue first that the court’s review of the health care law is premature, the outcome reached by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va. Long was brought into this case by the Supreme Court because neither side argued that exact position in the lower court. Long graduated from Yale Law School in 1985, was a Rhodes Scholar, and a law clerk to Justice Lewis F. Powell, Jr. Long served as an Assistant to the Solicitor General of the United States from 1990 to 1993 and has argued 16 cases before the Supreme Court. He also is an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law Center.
