"Vinson & Elkins Snags Elwood for Its Appellate Practice":

   The BLT has [1]a news story about the new job of our co-blogger John
   Elwood. It begins:

       Houston-based Vinson & Elkins is the latest big law firm to beef
     up its D.C. appellate practice by hiring a former Supreme Court law
     clerk and respected alum of the solicitor general's office. An
     announcement is due soon that it has hired John Elwood, an
     eight-year veteran of the Bush Administration Justice Department,
     to start on Monday as a partner in the D.C. office.
       Elwood, 42, clerked for Justice Anthony Kennedy in the 1996-1997
     term. After working at Miller, Cassidy, Larroca & Lewin and then
     Baker Botts, he joined the Justice Department's criminal division
     in 2001, moving to the SG's office in 2002. After arguing five
     cases before the high court, he moved to the Office of Legal
     Counsel, and by the time he left on Inauguration Day in 2009, he
     was the senior deputy in that office.
