Carter Phillips on the SG and the Obamacare suit

Always worth hearing from.
Don, I don’t know exactly what happened in terms of the start of the mandate case. I don’t know if he got something caught in his throat or exactly what was happening, but he started off slow. But ultimately, I thought Don made all the points he had to make and answered the tough questions effectively. It’s always hard when you compare two people and one has a lights-out couple of days. You look bad by comparison, but the truth is if you were comparing to 99 percent of the lawyers in the country, he still would have been at the top of that heap. It’s just when you’re up against one of the absolute best, it sometimes looks worse because of the comparison.
