“What has become particularly troubling is that instead of handing over the files and substituting out of the case, the Department of Justice attorneys remained in the thick of the litigation, filing papers against their own client, the United States of America” said PJI President Brad Dacus. “When this Solicitor General steps up to the podium in the Supreme Court to argue this case in less than ten days, the first question that the Justices should ask is: ‘Counsel – Exactly who do you represent?’” Dacus continued.
PJI is encouraging citizens across the country to visit NoWayDOJ.com to become official complainants.
It should be noted that last week the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the Solicitor General to participate in oral argument against California’s Proposition 8. Oddly, the federal government is not a party to that litigation.
