President Barack Obama on Thursday made his picks for the general counsel at the Departments of Homeland Security and Energy, as well as the National Labor Relations Board.
The GC nominations went to Stevan Bunnell for DHS, Steven Croley for DOE, and Richard Griffin Jr. for the NLRB.
Griffin's selection came as Obama withdrew his original nomination for Lafe Solomon to serve as the NLRB general counsel. Solomon, the NLRB acting general counsel, spent more than three years as the nominee for the post. He faced Republican opposition over a complaint he filed as acting GC against The Boeing Co., which built a new plant and tried to move work on a new airplane from Washington State to anti-union South Carolina. After Boeing compromised, the complaint was dropped.
