Booker‘s impact, House Republicans chose to focus on the study’s most attention-grabbing aspect: sex offenders. • Noble Calling?: CRP Executive Director Joining Skadden For five years Larry Noble has been an outspoken critic of loopholes in laws regulating big money’s influence on federal campaigns. But last week, the executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics announced he was leaving to join the political law practice at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. • Three’s a Crowd: Cozen Partner Leaves for LeBoeuf It was just two years ago that criminal defense expert Henry “Hank” Asbill and his longtime partners, Barry Boss and William Moffitt, closed their small firm to join the big leagues at Cozen O’Connor. But it turns out that the Philadelphia-based firm’s Washington outpost wasn’t quite enough for Asbill, who moved to LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae last week. • Live at Courtside: En Banc Hearing Coming to D.C. Law School D.C. Court of Appeals Chief Judge Eric Washington is taking his show on the road. On March 20, the court will hold an en banc hearing at the University of the District of Columbia David A.

Court’s Budget Request Quick and Simple Luckily the D.C. Court’s budget request could be summed up in two words, because that was about all the time they had.
