Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan

Per a Law.com article posted yesterday, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan consulted with attorneys from Skadden’s Washington, D.C. office just prior to her nomination.  The information was disclosed in her answers to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s background questionnaire.  According to the post, she met with the Skadden attorneys on at least two occasions.  On one of these occasions she was accompanied by Deputy White House Counsel.  On another, she consulted with a partner from Skadden’s tax practice.  The National Law Journal piece also reports that outside counsel – in that instance, the Washington office of Zuckerman Spaeder– was used by the White House in the initial interview process of Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
