ABA loves Big Labor, but not rule of law

Lafe Solomon, the National Labor Relations Board’s Acting general counsel, was nominated by President Obama for the position in January this year.

He’s such a controversial choice that even the Democratic-controlled Senate hasn’t brought him up for confirmation. That’s why “acting” still precedes his title at the NLRB.

Even so, the American Bar Association (ABA) named Solomon its Federal Labor and Employment Attorney of the Year. Some may see this as the ABA’s support for Big Labor; others, as an ideological poke at the unanimous Republican opposition to Solomon’s nomination.

However one views the ABA’s choice to honor Solomon, it is more evidence of the establishment legal community’s contempt for the constitutional rule of law.
