Default Court: Chicago Must Pay NRA Legal Fees-Again!!!

This one must surely PO hizzoner, Rahm:

Quote:
This is the second time that the City of Chicago has been ordered to reimburse legal fees in a suit sponsored by the NRA. The first was following the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago, in which Chicago was ordered to reimburse the NRA more than $600,000.

Aren't they making up for that loss by taxing the crap out of gun and ammo sales now?

I find this hilarious.

However, is this something that goes back and forth? Has the NRA had to refund lawyer fees to any cities/states/anti organizations? I'm just wondering if this is lawyers trading money at taxpayer expense or is it more one sided which while at taxpayer expense I have more tolerance for.

i think its awesome their city has to pay for what they have done to their citizens. i wish it would sting enough to get them to stop. last i remember, chicago was in the usa and subject to the law of the land...the constitution.

they could give almost anything away in chicago for free...and i'd pass.

and the other the problem is...all these a-holes are coming to texas.

i'm getting to where i almost throw up in mouth a bit when i see so many plates form CALI and NY moving into austin and the surrounding area. especially considering those states have traditionally been very critical of texas and our culture.

wreck their state and cities, then come wreck ours?

i can only hope they're good folk getting away from the madness, but i'm not convinced.

Of course the lawyers are just swapping fees.

I had a small town lawyer tell me this, and with a straight face:

He said, "Son, in a town like this, if there is just one lawyer, he will starve to death. If there are two lawyers, they will both make a good living......"
A law degree is as close as a license to steal as exists in our society.

When they make me king of the world, my motto will be, "a lawyer for every lamp post."
