Edge Boston reports:
The Office of General Counsel said West Chester lawyer Bill Lamb, a former state Supreme Court justice, was hired to be lead counsel at a rate of $400 an hour. His associates will be paid $325 an hour.The federal case, filed two months ago, seeks to overturn the state’s 1996 ban on gay marriage. It was brought by a group that includes the widow of a woman who died in May after they were legally married in Massachusetts, 10 couples and one of the couples’ two teenage daughters.
How much taxpayer money will they waste defending a law that will, ultimately, likely be struck down, if not by this court, then by the next?
