WASHINGTON � The Justice Department’s Office of the Solicitor General has hired four new people to the position of assistant to the Solicitor General. The post is among the best legal jobs in the federal government, and it is rare that several such positions are open at the same time. The four new assistants, two of whom are law professors, will be representing the United States in the Supreme Court and lower courts. Curtis Gannon, who was most recently an associate in Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher’s Washington, Washington office. He served on the legal team representing George W. Bush in the Bush v. Gore. Before joining Gibson Dunn, he clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia and was an attorney adviser in the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel. Anthony A. Yang moves out of the Justice Department’s Civil Division appellate staff and into his new post as an assistant to the Solicitor General. He has been involved in such terrorism-related cases as the Al Haramain Islamic Foundation litigation in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Toby Heytens has taken leave to join the office after only a year at the University of Virginia School of Law. Heyten held a 2001 fellowship in the Office of Solicitor General. He is a former clerk to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and practiced with O’Melveny & Myers before joining the University of Virginia law school faculty. Leondra R. Kruger, a former clerk to Justice John Paul Stevens, leaves her post as a visiting assistant professor at the University of Chicago Law School. Prior to her teaching position, she was an associate at Washington’s WilmerHale.
