FILE - In a Jan. 7, 2008, file photo Attorney Donald Verrilli talks to media outside the Supreme Court after arguing against the use of a three drug cocktail for lethal injections in death penalty executions. Now Obama's top Supreme Court lawyer, Solicitor General Verilli was maligned for his performance in both the health care and Arizona immigration cases. Turns out, he largely prevailed in both cases, in which he also was in charge of producing the administration's written legal briefs. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)
