CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The solicitor general in the state attorney general's office is taking on a new title until he gets a West Virginia law license.
Elbert Lin's new title is senior assistant to the attorney general.
Lin was named to Attorney General Patrick Morrissey's senior staff last week. The former Washington, D.C., lawyer came to the job without a license to practice law in West Virginia.
Morrissey's office tells the Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/YvmEMP) Lin is "in the process of applying" for a license. Lin makes $132,000 a year.
