George T. Conway III Legal career
From 1987 to 1988 Conway served as a law clerk to Judge Ralph K. Winter, Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. In September 1988, Conway joined the law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, and in January 1994 was named a partner. His law practice focuses on litigation involving securities, mergers and acquisitions, contracts, and antitrust.
Conway was one of the lawyers who represented Paula Jones in her lawsuit against U.S. President Bill Clinton. During the representation of Jones, he worked closely with Ann Coulter and Matt Drudge. On 29th March 2010, Conway argued the securities case of Morrison v. National Australia Bank before the U.S. Supreme Court and won with an 8–0 vote with an opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia.
Conway had been considered a candidate for some U.S. Department of Justice posts. Conway was considered for the position of Solicitor General along with Gregory G. Katsas, before the post going to Noel Francisco in January 2017. On 17th March 2017, Conway was reported to be the nominee as Assistant Attorney General to head the Civil Division at the U.S. Department of Justice. On 2nd June 2017, he announced that he declined to pursue the post. On 16th November 2018, Conway stated that a reason he did not join the Trump administration is because it is “like a shitshow in a dumpster fire.”
Conway and Neal Katyal, wrote an op-ed in the New York Times challenging the Constitutionality of Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general, to replace Jeff Sessions On 9th November 2018. Trump used the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 (FVRA) to appoint Whitaker, which allows the President to make interim appointments. US Presidents nominate thousands of individuals to offices in executive and judicial branches of government—many of which have to be reviewed and approved by the Senate. The FVRA allows interim appointments, without first seeking Senate approval, under three limited conditions: their “first assistant can replace an office-holder”; an office-holder can be replaced by someone the Senate approved for another appointment; an office-holder can be replaced by a senior Government worker, at the GS-15 level. Whitaker was not Sessions’ “first assistant”: that was Rod Rosenstein. Conway and Katyal argued that it was a mistake to try to use the FVRA to override the explicit wording of the Constitution, which requires Senate approval of all appointees who answer directly to the President.
Conway organized a group, “Checks and Balances,” composed of more than a dozen members of the conservative-libertarian Federalist Society in November 2018. The group had been instrumental in selecting candidates for the Trump administration to appoint to federal courts. The New York Times reported the group is “urging their fellow conservatives to speak up about what they say are the Trump administration’s betrayals of bedrock legal norms,” with group member John Bellinger stating “Conservative lawyers are not doing enough to protect constitutional principles that are being undermined by the statements and actions of this president.”
