Two with Military Ties Named DC's Most Influential

The National Law Journal just named DoD General Counsel Jeh Johnson one of Washington, DC's Most Influential In-House Counsel.  Overseeing the on-going end to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the revitalization of military commissions, and weighin in on the legality of the US action in Libya helped propel this former Air Force General Counsel onto the list.  Johnson is also a former NIMJ board member.

The list of 20 also includes an familiar name.  Mars, Inc's Vice-President and General Counsel Alberto Mora is best known for his time as General Counsel of the Navy.  Mora is an outspoken critic of detainee policies deemed to include torture.

Congrats to both men on their selections!
