The former Solicitor General of West Virginia, Elbert Lin co-leads Hunton Andrews Kurth's Issues and Appeals practice. He has been on the front lines of many precedent-setting cases in appellate courts across the country, including in a US Supreme Court victory that George Will called ?the court?s most severe rebuke of a president? since the Truman administration.
Mr. Lin's practice has spanned a wide range of issues, including major questions of constitutional and administrative law at the federal and state levels. On behalf of more than two dozen states, he won a stay from the US Supreme Court of the EPA?s Clean Power Plan. Described by the New York Times as an ?unprecedented? order, the stay was the first time the Supreme Court had ever put a regulation on hold before review by a federal appeals court. In that same case, Elbert argued before the en banc DC Circuit in a historic proceeding that one commenter compared to ?the NBA All-Star Game? (E&E News 2016).
