Ed Kneedler, Deputy Solicitor General, Justice Department

The Service to America Medals honor federal employees who go above and beyond their job descriptions to serve the public. For the next few months, Federal News Radio will speak to the finalists. When the Justice Department has a big case before the Supreme Court there's one man it turns to over and over again. Ed Kneedler has argued 125 cases before the high court, a record among today's lawyers. He's defended the government's positions on the Affordable Care Act, on a controversial Arizona immigration law and even in the Elian Gonzalez case during the Clinton Administration. Deputy Solicitor General Ed Kneedler joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss his Sammies nomination.
