Q Jay said yesterday that the President thought Solicitor General Verrilli had done a good job in the arguments. Did he listen to those himself, the audio of that?
MR. EARNEST: Has the President heard the audio?

Q As a constitutional law professor, is he not sort of interested in that on two fronts?
MR. EARNEST: There are many reasons why the President is interested in it. The President has been following them in the news reports and has gotten specific briefings from our legal staff at the White House.

And Mr. Verrilli effectively was an advocate for the 50 million Americans who have access to free preventative coverage -- or free preventative services through their private insurance coverage because of the Affordable Care Act. Thats essentially the role that Mr. Verrilli was charged with and everyone at the White House was pleased with his performance.
