Schlick Leaving Md for FCC
Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler (D) is losing one of the most visible lawyers in his office to the federal government: Austin Schlick, chief of litigation, has been named general counsel at the Federal Communications Commission.
Schlick has argued in court on behalf of the state in several high-profile battles, including a challenge to the validity of the 2007 special legislative session and the bidding process for the state's fledgling slots program.
Before his Maryland tenure, Schlick, a magna cum laude graduate of Princeton University and Yale Law School, served as deputy general counsel and acting general counsel at the FCC.
