Can't believe what I'm reading on the AP wire. What the heck are these lawyers thinking?

Attornies fees. I haven't read the article, but I'm assuming they are suing for deprivation of rights under color of law (42 USC 1983). A subsequent section (1988) allows the court to award attornies fees to the prevailing party as part of the costs. Its all about money and billable hours.

When I hear about "civil rights" lawyers, I reach for my AR-15.
