Antebellum Attorney General

Seth Barrett Tillman's picture

The antebellum Attorney General was allowed to have private clients. Does anyone know of any cases where the AG (in a private capacity) represented (in the Supreme Court or any U.S. court of record) a foreign state, foreign government instrumentality, foreign government agency, foreign government-affiliated entity (including a foreign government-affiliated commercial entity), or a foreign (civilian or military) government official or officer or employee (on behalf of that foreign government)? 

 

This query is for a future research paper, but it may also be useful towards an amicus brief in a matter currently before the courts. 

 

Thank you.

 

Seth
