U.S. Supreme Court Taps Covington’s Long

November 18, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC, November 18, 2011 — The U.S. Supreme Court issued an order today appointing Robert Long, a partner at Covington & Burling, to participate in arguments at the Court concerning the 2010 health care law.

In its order, the Court invited Mr. Long to, “brief and argue this case, as amicus curiae, in support of the position that the Anti-Injunction Act, 26 U.S.C. §7421(a), bars the suit brought by respondents to challenge the minimum coverage provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, 26 U.S.C. §5000A.”

Mr. Long chairs the firm’s Appellate and Supreme Court practice and has argued 16 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. He was a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell, Jr., and Judge John Minor Wisdom of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. From 1990 to 1993, he served as an Assistant to the Solicitor General of the United States.
