Rahm Emanuel doesn’t care.
It’s not his money.
He and his merry band of gun-hating Democrat Machine politicians in Chicago keep defending the indefensible.
And they keep losing and paying the legal bills for all of it.
The latest bill came yesterday: $940,000.
And the same law firm is poised to collect another $618,000 from Lisa Madigan.
Don’t take our word for it. Here’s Frank Main in the Sun-Times.
Gun-rights advocates have delivered a one-two punch to the city of Chicago.
The first blow came on Jan. 6 when a federal judge ruled the city’s longtime ban on gun stores was unconstitutional.
On Thursday, the second blow landed when the judge approved $940,000 in legal fees that the city must pay to the attorneys who challenged the ban. Charles J. Cooper, one of those plaintiffs’ attorneys, charged $975 an hour for his work.
Cooper, whose law firm Cooper & Kirk is based in Washington, is also looking for a big payout from the state. He submitted a $618,000 bill for work he and other plaintiffs’ attorneys performed in a gun-rights lawsuit against Attorney General Lisa Madigan.
