Will The Gays Get Prop 8’s Supporters to Pay Ted Olson + David Boies’ Bills?

What do you think Ted Olson and David Boies have been charging to try the Prop 8 case? $500 an hour? $750? Throw in all the junior associates proofing their work for $300 an hour and it probably costs the American Foundation for Equal Rights about $1,000 every time they pick up the phone. And now the Perry plaintiffs are considering asking the court to have the defendants pick up their tab (it’s gotta be seven figures) if the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upholds Judge Vaughn Walker’s ruling.
