Apparently, law firms aren't allowed to help some clients without getting on HRC's bad side:
"The Human Rights Campaign, a leading gay-rights group, has written to 200 of the country's top law firms urging them not to take up the case on behalf of the House." (AP)
John Adams, in defending the officers charged in the Boston Massacre, accepted the case at great risk to his family and personal career because he believed "No man in a free country should be denied the right to counsel and a fair trial."
For hundreds of years the legal profession has based itself on the idea that every person is entitled to counsel.
Except those defending marriage apparently.
