As Lawfare readers have probably noticed, there has been a fair amount of controversy over Matthew Whitaker's designation as acting attorney general as of late. To keep track of it all, we at Lawfare have put together a resource page collecting all litigation documents regarding Whitaker's appointment, ranging from outright challenges to Whitaker's role as acting attorney general (Maryland v. U.S., Blumenthal v. Whitaker, and Michaels v. Whitaker) to a case in which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has requested supplementary briefing on the matter (In re Grand Jury Investigation). We'll be keeping the page updated as the litigation moves forward.

You can find the page here or under the "Special Features" menu at the top of the page.
