LL stopped in to Peter Nickles‘ office yesterday to see if the mayor’s general counsel, lately in the news quite a bit, had anything to say. As usual, he did:

On Ralph Nader wanting him fired: “I think that Nader’s a great guy,” he said. “Disagree with his letter.”

On the firing of Supreme Court advocate Alan Morrison: “[I] disagree with the leaking of privileged communications to the press, despite my great prediliction toward the press.” (LL vouches for Nickles’ great predilection toward the press.)

On a replacement for Morrison: “I’m going to decide that soon,” he said, within a week. “It’s going to be someone with significant Supreme Court experience….Someone, in my view, with even more experience than Mr. Morrison.”
