Marty Lederman, known to many as one of the most insightful legal bloggers on the ‘net, will begin work immediately in the Office of Legal Council in the Obama administration. From 1994 to 2002, he served as Attorney Advisor in the OLC and he left in 2002 to take up a teaching position at Georgetown University.

Amongst the least important parts of his legacy, he has been writing on Balkinization since 2005. He first appeared on my radar after the torture memos from the OLC were released in 2005. When the memos were coming out, his experience inside the OLC proved invaluable and his analysis was far more insightful than the normal legal or political commentary.
