10. I will, reluctantly.
The DOJ has a mandate to represent the Government in legal cases.
Therefore, when the Gov. is sued, even for a law that is years old, the current DOJ must go to court.

Tho since they managed to screw up and let a lot of crooked politicians and slimy corporations go free, you would think they could screw up in our favor once in a while.
