Anita Hill. (Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll/ PR Newswire)

• Anita Hill is returning to D.C.. Twenty years after she accused former boss Clarence Thomas of harassment at his Supreme Court confirmation hearing, the law professor is joining Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll (which led the Wal-Mart sex-discrimination case shot down by the high court last month) of counsel for its D.C. civil rights and employment group. Hill told National Law Journal she wants to combine her academic work with hands-on litigation. Her presence here may be limited: She’s staying on the faculty at Brandeis, near Boston.

• Jose Antonio Vargas, our former colleague-turned-advocate who came out as an illegal immigrant last month, has lost his driver’s license. Vargas wrote in the New York Times that he got a license earlier this year in Washington, which has looser policies than other states about credentialing people here illegally. State officials investigated, and revoked his license after finding he didn’t live at the address he provided. Vargas’s rep told the Seattle Times he has no comment.
