A long-time Washington, D.C. attorney with ties to Hillary Clinton and the daughter and son-in-law to President Trump, has been retained by one of the parties in the trademark litigation of several attractions of Yosemite National Park brought on by the former concessionaire, Delaware North.
According to McClatchy DC Bureau:
WASHINGTON A Yosemite National Park trademark fight has an influential new combatant with the recruitment of a top D.C. lawyer whose clients include the daughter and son-in-law of President Donald Trump.
Attorney Jamie S. Gorelick, a longtime D.C. power player since her years as deputy attorney general in the Clinton administration, now represents Yosemite’s current concessionaire in the trademark battle. Her hiring underscores the high-dollar stakes in a legal conflict that at one time seemed headed for a settlement but has since grown more complicated.
In a succinct filing last Tuesday with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the Justice Department declared that Gorelick, a partner with the firm WilmerHale, has been retained by Yosemite Hospitality LLC. The latter is a subsidiary of the Philadelphia-based Aramark, which took over the lucrative primary Yosemite concessions contract last year.
Gorelick has a checkered past in our recent history as this article in The American Thinker attests. She is dubbed "the mistress of disaster" in that article.
