“DOJ Asks DC Circuit to Uphold Lobbyist Ban”


The U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday fired back at six lobbyists who are in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit challenging the Obama administration ban on federal lobbyists serving on agency boards and commissions.

The D.C. Circuit should uphold the ban that a Washington federal trial judge, Amy Berman Jackson, found constitutional last year, Michael Raab, an assistant director of the DOJ Civil Division appellate staff, wrote yesterday in the government’s  opening brief in the appellate court.
