Here is the letter Virginia Attorney General Cuccinelli sent to Atlanta law firm King and Spalding after the firm dumped the defense of DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act). Recall first that Eric Holder abandoned his job to defend federal statutes so the House hired Paul Clement at King and Spalding. When King and Spalding caved to pressure, Clement resigned and continued the defense of the law elsewhere. Now the Virginia AG, famous for beating back Obamacare, returns the favor, and fires King and Spalding from any representation of Virginia. Perhaps other Attorneys General and clients may follow suit. Paging Sam Olens.
