Last week, a Bush administration attorney, Nicholas Geale, was quietly named the Acting Solicitor of Labor. His name and contact information has been updated on the DOL key personnel website as both the Acting and Deputy Solicitor.
Geale previously served in the Department of Labor under President George W. Bush. His appointment occurs as Andrew Puzder withdrew for consideration for the Secretary of Labor, and as Alex Acosta’s confirmation is pending.
