As senior litigation counsel in the solicitor general’s office, Minear is one of the U.S. government’s top appellate advocates. Not a political appointee, Minear, 45, is a career government attorney who has argued 40 Supreme Court cases. He already has Microsoft experience as a member of the Justice Department team that argued unsuccessfully that the high court should take the Microsoft case on an expedited basis and skip the D.C. Circuit entirely. Minear has a low-key, fact-intensive style of advocacy. His original specialty was environmental law, but he quickly became a broad appellate advocate. He has taught a course about the solicitor general’s office at the Georgetown University Law Center.
Like Minear, Frederick is a career government attorney in the solicitor general’s office who is not an antitrust specialist. But all lawyers in that office pride themselves on being able to learn the facts and law in a wide variety of cases. At 39, Frederick has argued 11 cases in the Supreme Court. Frederick was a Rhodes scholar who clerked for retired Justice Byron White. He is the author of “Rugged Justice: The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the American West, 1891-1941,” which was published in 1994 by the University of California Press.
