VIRGINIA: King & Spalding Fired By AG Ken Cuccinelli For DOMA "Weakness"

Notoriously anti-gay Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has fired the Atlanta-based law firm King & Spalding for backing out of the DOMA cases.
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has ended his office’s relationship with the law firm that earlier this week said it would not represent the House of Representatives in its case supporting the Defense of Marriage Act. In a letter to Atlanta-based King & Spalding, the state’s top law enforcement official, a Republican, says that the firm’s willingness to drop the House as a client in the DOMA case “was such an obsequious act of weakness” that he sees the need to terminate Virginia’s ties with the firm.
