Bill Lamb is actually a pretty decent guy.  I have no idea why he'd go out on a limb for Corbett.  This town doesn't appreciate bigots, or intolerance of any kind.

For 400 bucks an hour...that's why.  Truthfully, I think he knows it's a lost cause.  But to a lawyer, even taking on a case you know is going to lose can be seen as 'marketing'...He can tell future clients "I argued in front of the US Supreme Court" (Have they taken the case?  No idea where this is in the process)

It's kind of like an engineer having his/her name on a patent, even if it's a sucky patent.  It still goes on the resume as "...is listed on 'x' patents."

He's already made his name.  He has people waiting in line to give him $400 an hour.

He's big in GOP political circles, though, and I suspect he's doing Corbett a favor.

Perhaps.  Not really 'in tune' with PN politics.  Watching my own state of WI disintegrate due to Walker is enough for me...

FTA:
Witold Walczak, the legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, who is representing the plaintiffs, said he appreciated having "good counsel" on the opposing side. "Generally it improves presentation of the competing arguments, which helps the judge reach a sound decision," he said.

oh man, this is so true.  it is exceptionally annoying to oppose idiot counsel that does all sorts of farked up shiat and can't tell their head from the ass.

it's like this, would you rather work hard on the issues and feel like a lawyer, or work hard on weird shiat like sanctions, discovery, and bla bla bla and feel like the babysitter of your retarded enemy?

/ has dealt with both, would much much rather fight a good lawyer/law firm than an idiot.  not to say it's easier.  but, it is better.

At least we know Corbett is doing something practical with the billion dollars he slashed from the state's education budget.

It isn't at the supremes level yet, it has to be argued through the lower level federal courts first. But it is more than likely they will have to accept it eventually.

/It would be wonderful if crazy ass PA could be responsible for breaking down the 'state law trumps federal law' marriage issue.

A bazillion times THIS. I just finally ended a case in federal court that has been going on for 18 months with a completely insane wanna-be pro se idiot Plaintiff. Finally got summary judgment after it languished since February.

Lamb will be paid $400 an hour for his legal counsel work, while others in his firm will receive $325 an hour for their services.

You'll spend this kind of money defending bigotry, but fark the Philly school system, right Corbett? You farking evil douchebag.

Chestet county is the Philly metropolitan area doesn't fall inside the Pennsyltucky zone.

Something about Philly on the east Pittsburgh on the west snd Georgia in between.

This is exactly my problem.  Corbett farks over Philly every chance he gets (farking over our schools, underfunding a MAJOR transit system, etc) and this is what he decides to do with our money?

Seriously, the only reason I didn't start setting fires when he was elected was the hope he might be able to do something about the PLCB.  However, since he fails at that too fires are back on the table.

...I live ten minutes from West Chester, actually. Out near route one.

But that doesn't change the fact that we are a very, very, very backwards state. Bright red with two blue spots keeping us democratic in the presidential election. I went to college within spitting distance of three grand dragons of the KKK, and that was only an hour from West Chester.

I like PA, but you can hardly get away with claiming we abhor racists and bigots when we keep electing them and supporting them.

I grew up in Franklin County, so I fully understand the backward part of the state, but "red with blue spots" basically describes the entire US between the Sierra Nevadas and the Hudson River.

Since the plumbers rates are closely aligned with Pennsylvania lawyer's rates this makes sense some how. After all, doesn't that baby talking governor just assume this is to fix some problem with peoples' plumbing.

Kentucky also has Vicco, the smallest city in America to pass an ordinance outlawing discrimination based on sexual orientation.
