The revolving door has spun Eugene Scalia back to his old law firm. In March the former solicitor general for the U.S. Department of Labor returned to Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher as a partner in the firm’s D.C. office. He’ll serve as cochair of the firm’s labor and employment practice group, and as a member of its appellate and constitutional law team. Federal ethics rules prohibit Scalia from working on cases involving the Labor Department for one year. But he’s not worried about a lack of things to do. He says he can already handle a wide variety of labor and employment matters involving other agencies and private litigants. President Bush appointed Scalia, 39, as Labor’s top lawyer in 2001, but the son of archconservative U.S. Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia was never able to win Senate confirmation. Scalia fils instead received a recess appointment from the president in January 2002, and in November was dubbed acting solicitor. During his time at Labor, Scalia’s duties included probing Enron Corp. pension plans and intervening in the West Coast ports labor dispute. “It was a great honor to serve as solicitor,” he says. “But I did at times miss the hands-on practice of law.”
