Prof. Doug NeJaime was quoted by the Washington Blade on spending in Defense of Marriage Act litigation

On Oct. 16, Associate Professor Doug NeJaime was quoted in a Washington Blade story about the costs of defending the Defense of Marriage Act:

Doug NeJaime, who’s gay and a law professor at Loyola Law School, said he’s unable to comment on the cost cap itself, but predicted that continued defense of the law before the Supreme Court would come at considerable expense.

“I’m not surprised at how much in legal fees has been expended up to this point,” NeJaime said. “There are multiple DOMA suits pending and there has been a flurry of activity at the Supreme Court, and BLAG is represented by an experienced and expensive legal team. If the Supreme Court takes up DOMA, these fees will increase considerably.”
