So who are those clients? According to Kirkland’s own website, some of them are:
Chiquita Bananas, Verizon, Coca-Cola, Boeing, Chevron, Avanade, Siemens AG, AOL, Hershey, Time Warner, ARAMARK, and ESL Partners LP.
Without paying clients, law firms like Kirkland cannot pursue pro bono litigation, including pro bono litigation against widows. Worthing notes another paying client of Kirkland and Ellis, one with some relevance to Andrew Breitbart:

I did learn that one of Soros’ companies was represented by them.

Maybe Coca-Cola and Hershey can be reassured that some other client is subsidizing the lawsuits against Sherrod and North Carolina. But will conservative media stand by while the widow of one of their own is gobbled up by a heartless, vindictive lawsuit?
I suspect not.

Speaking of suing widows and orphans, I came across the name Kirkland and Ellis recently in another connection--- a prosecutor who was castigated by an appellate judge for unethical behavior in a criminal case. The opinion named him at first, but his boss pleaded to have the prosecutor's name removed, so the court whitewashed it out. The unethical prosecutor is now a partner at Kirkland and Ellis.

You are absolutely correct. The prosecutor in the Kojayan case was Jeff Sinek, now at Kirkland and Ellis in Los Angeles:

Here is the news article describing the "sanitizing" of Mr. Sinek's name from the court's opinion:

Checking the docket for the case in question (venued in DC), I see that Susannah Breitbart has been represented so far (in her capacity as Amicus) by Dan Herbst and Eric Dubelier from the DC office of Reed Smith. That's a very, very good law firm - the kind of folks for whom going up against Kirkland will only provide additional motivation. Don't know the arrangement under which they have been representing Susannah. If it's pro bono, major, major props to them. If not, wondering if there is any defense fund set up for contributions? Never met Andy or Susannah but I'm still feeling indebted for what Andy did for all of us on the right and I doubt I'm alone in this.

The entire Shirley Sherrod tape is described here at the bottom of the blog. Read it and weep. http://clarespark.com/2010/07/18/white-elite-enabling-of-black-power/. No one else got it completely right in describing the tape.

No, they are not representing her pro bono, they're doing it pro malo publico

How about some reasonably accessible way for readers to compose a form or individualized response to these underwriters of mischief and evil? I believe that is how the lib sites manage to generate "grassroots" action. Make it easy to do and it's more likely to happen.

I'm still waiting for an explanation of what Breitbart did wrong. So he showed videos of Shirley Sherrod, speaking in Shirley Sherrod's words? Welcome to the Orwellian Twilight Zone.

Well, well, well. The Sherrods appear to be swimming in cash and other assets. How about the Breitbarts (Mom and kids) counter sue for illegal harassment and pain and suffering against both the Sherrods and the dirtbag law firm? I'll contribute to a fund started for them to take on these douchebags.

Since Sherrrod turned down reinstatement to her job, is this a "process is the punishment" case? Are they doing this specifically with malice aforethought to chill speech from the right?

Countersue.

And include Kirkland and Ellis as a respondent on grounds that they willingly and knowingly brought a malicious and harassing lawsuit on specious grounds with the intent to cause financial hardship. Demand both monetary damages and surrender of license to practice. (This, by the way, was my promised response the last time I was threatened with this kind of crap. Amazing how quickly the threat dissipated.)

The sleazeballs get away with this because people let them.

The Sherrods have been riding the grievance-based lawsuit gravy train for decades. They have NO shame in suing Andrew's widow Susie. This really makes my blood boil. #War
