Veteran appellate lawyer H. Thomas Byron III will defend the government’s bulk collection of phone records next month at argument in a Washington federal appeals court, according to court papers filed Monday.

Byron has long argued in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and other federal appellate courts, on issues that include post-9/11 surveillance, national security, the Freedom of Information Act and international disputes. Byron is on the appellate staff of the Civil Division at the U.S. Department of Justice.
