Clement has resigned re: DOMA defense.
"Clement quits firm over Defense of Marriage Act flap -

Former Solicitor General Paul Clement resigned Monday from his law firm, King & Spalding, over the firm's abrupt and belated decision to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act on behalf of the House of Representatives."

4. That's good.
I'm sure they may have lost more than they would have gained.

2. Oh snap.
Looks like there's not much money and/or prestige in defending discriminatory laws nowadays, at least outside of fundamentalist religious organizations.
