AMTRAK HIRES NEW DEPUTY COUNSEL WASHINGTON � Amtrak, the national passenger rail service that comes under regular congressional fire for its persistent deficit, has hired Jonathan Meyer as deputy general counsel. Meyer, who leaves the Hill after six years as nominations counsel to Sen. Joseph Biden Jr., D-Del., was hired by Amtrak’s new general counsel, Eleanor “Eldie” Acheson. The two worked together at the Clinton Justice Department when Acheson was assistant attorney general in charge of the Office of Policy Development, now known as the Office of Legal Policy. Biden regularly rides Amtrak between Washington and his home in Wilmington and is one of the rail company’s staunchest Hill supporters. (Biden’s son is also on Amtrak’s board.) Despite those connections, Meyer says his hiring at Amtrak is merely a “happy coincidence.” His relationship with Acheson, he says, predates his work on the Hill. In his career Meyer has also practiced at then-Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering in the District and with Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York City.
