Attorney General Ashley Moody recently appointed Henry C. Whitaker Florida’s solicitor general.

Whitaker will represent the Attorney General’s Office in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Florida Supreme Court, and legally advises on appellate cases in state and federal courts.

“I am honored to appoint Henry Whitaker as solicitor general of the State of Florida,” Moody said. “He has spent many years advising the federal government on its most critical legal issues and litigating some of its most important cases. I look forward to working with him as we fight to protect the interests of Florida and its citizens in our nation’s courts.”
