The Lawyer Who Saved Obamacare — Legally Speaking

(Visit: As the 46th Solicitor General of the United States, Donald B. Verrilli Jr. is best known for the case he made before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2012 in which he successfully defended the constitutionality of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Also that year, he scored a big victory when the High Court largely struck down an immigration law passed by the state of Arizona. Verrilli speaks with UC Hastings Law Professor Rory Little in San Francisco two years after those rulings about what it takes to be an effective Solicitor General and the biggest on-the-job challenges he’s had to face.
