    In an esteemed legal journal, the politics of the writer should not be on such visible display. Thanks for sharing at the end that of all the things it could have done, all the ACLU did was to buy a judge a sandwich. Please, Zoe, grow up.

    Wait, the ACLU paid for a Judge to have a sandwich!?!??!? STOP THE CORRUPTION.

    How fascinating that this reporter jes‘ could not find examples of leftist groups paying for lawyers to attend events, give speeches, etc. Here‘s a quickie tip, to help out with that bias thing: type in "Soros Foundations," or "Brennan Center," or "Sierra Club." For that matter, just scroll through the lists of conferences held by law schools and FOIA a few of the speaker fees. Think these schools and their law clinics don‘t have interests before the courts? Try thinking harder.
