I kinda skimmed that thing, but am I to understand that a criminal defendant would be limited in the amount of money that could be spent on his defense but the government prosecuting him has no limit?

I'm sorry, but when the people that commit grossly heinous crimes like, sending a country to war based on lies and nearly destroying the global economy to make an extra buck, don't even get charged with anything?  How the hell does your plan to address legal inequality even touch that, smartass?

DamnYankees: Nabb1: This seems like a genuinely terrible idea.

The only aspect of it I might be convinced about is civil litigation.

The criminal part is absurd. You don't make justice equal by depriving people of legal counsel. That's dumb as hell. The goal should be the provision of good legal counsel to everyone, and if you have the money to spend more, go for it.

Civil litigation I can *maybe* see an argument for having rules which govern expense of counsel. But I don't know what that would be, and not being a litigator I don't have strong feelings. I also feel like they'd be quite easily circumvented.

Yeah...this seems like a No Defendant Left Behind kind of notion.

'"They" get away with it, because "we" allow it. We are not adequately angry, hungry or pissed off enough to change things... and societal change is slow and meandering. I guess it really just all boils down to... Santa Claus hat-wearing dogs with drum sticks.
