Postal Service goes to court over rate request
November 26, 2010
Twice this year, disputes between the Postal Service and the commission that regulates it have landed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
In the latest case, filed on Oct. 22, postal officials want the D.C. Circuit to overturn a decision by regulators to reject an increase on the cost of mailing a letter or package.
And postal officials are hiring top legal talent to help in the fight. To the rate-increase battle, they’ve brought on former Solicitor General Paul Clement and fellow appellate litigators from King & Spalding.
In the earlier case, which was over the commission’s regulatory powers, a team that included Mayer Brown managing partner Kenneth Geller and partner Miriam Nemetz worked on behalf of postal officials.
The commission is represented by its general counsel, Stephen Sharfman, and Justice Department appellate lawyers Eric Fleisig-Greene and Michael Raab.
