HRC Vs Utah
Via press release from the Human Rights Campaign:
This afternoon, we learned via a statement from the AG's office that Utahns may soon be on the hook for millions in legal fees to defend discrimination. According to the statement, an appeal to the Supreme Court will be delayed so that the office can hire and consult with outside counsel, all at the expense of taxpayers. No other details -- the counsel, the contracted dollar amount -- were provided. Defending discrimination is indefensible. Defending discrimination while expending millions of taxpayer dollars to do so is beyond explanation. It should be an affront to all Utahns that their hard-earned tax dollars -- dollars that should be going into schools, roads or health programs -- will instead be used to be on the wrong side of history.
