In January, the U.S. Olympic Committee named attorney Scott Blackmun as its new chief executive officer. Blackmun recently left Denver firm Holme Roberts & Owen, where he started his legal career in 1982, and which he rejoined in 2006 after stints with the USOC and Anschutz Entertainment Group, where he was chief operative officer. The National Law Journal spoke with Blackmun about his new job, the USOC's problems, the upcoming Vancouver games and what he'll miss about private practice.
