President Obama last week nominated Donald Verrilli, Jr., a familiar face at the Supreme Court who has argued a dozen cases from the lectern, to be the new Solicitor General.

And Marcia Coyle reports in The National Law Journal that Verrilli “holes himself up with a whole mess of smoked salmon and doesn’t talk to anyone” in the 24 hours before an argument, according to a friend, Jenner & Block partner Paul Smith.

About

Courtartist is me, Art Lien. I've been sketching the courts since 1976, and for most of that time the U.S. Supreme Court has been my regular beat. I've been working almost exclusively for NBC News since 1980. Courtroom sketching is a form of visual journalism or reportage drawing that is slowly dying out. Where once upon a time news organization each had their own artist covering a story, today a "pool" artist often sketches for all. It is a demanding and stressful discipline where the drawing is often done directly and under tight deadline.
