Solicitor General Asks To Argue Aereo Case

The Justice Department is taking an extra step to bolster its support of  TV networks in their U.S. Supreme Court case argument that Aereo is illegally retransmitting local TV station signals. U.S. Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr., who previously filed a friend of the court brief siding with broadcasters, is now asking to be allowed to argue his view endorsing TV networks stance during high court oral arguments in the case April 22.
