NOM Launches 'Investigation' Of Law Firm's Decision To Drop DOMA Case


Brown also praised Paul Clement for leaving the law firm after King & Spalding dropped the DOMA case because, according to law firm chairman Chairman Robert D. Hays, Jr., "the process used for vetting this engagement was inadequate."

"In contrast to the principled stand by Paul Clement, King & Spalding, through their Chairman Robert Hays, has demonstrated a shocking lack of professional ethics and shown cowardice under fire," Brown said. "This law firm has shown itself to be without principle."

Brown also distributed a phone number and email address for Hays and encouraged supporters to "contact Hays to express their outrage over the firm's decision."
