Something to add later[edit]

Don't want to add this to the article yet, as it would give undue weight to the issue. But once this article is more than a stub, this is one thing Myers has done:

In late 2007 the Recording Industry Association of America subpoenaed the University of Oregon, asking it to identify students who, it alleged, had illegally shared copyrighted music. The university, represented by Myers, refused to provide the information, questioning the tactics used in the investigation.[1]

Also, more importantly, we should include the AG's role in a major court case involving the Columbia River and Snake River dams. -Pete (talk) 17:15, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, I'll add that in now that I have expanded it a bit. Any more notable cases and or activities Myers has taken as AG (or any of the other offices and positions he has held) I think there is a enough meat in the article now that we can add them in without too much issue with undue weight (within reason of course).

Oregon House District 19?[edit]

Not sure how to handle his holding office in the Oregon House in the info box (or wikifying it in the article either) since from the meager source on his first coming into the House says that he represented what was then House district 19. That implies that it has since been redistricted and the area he represented may not now conform to what is the current House district 19. I wanted to add in his office as rep, and terms in that office etc, but not sure if I should just plow ahead and say he was Rep for District 19 and let it be. Thoughts?
