VA Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli ends his relationship with King & Spalding


Ken Cuccinelli is being a little bitter. Since King & Spalding dropped the DOMA case, he is dropping them. But why? Here's his reason:
"King & Spalding's willingness to drop a client, the U.S. House of Representatives, in connection with the lawsuit challenging the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was such an obsequious act of weakness that I feel compelled to end your legal association with Virginia so that there is no chance that one of my legal clients will be put in the embarrassing and difficult situation like the client you walked away from, the House of Representatives."
Weakness? Maybe common sense? Maybe since they expressed their support of the LGBT community before all this? Who knows, but I think they will be able to sleep at night knowing Ken no longer needs their services.
