More on the resignation of former Pentagon official Cully Stimson from National Review Online here, here, here, here, and here.
I wrote about the problems this presents for the Minnesota legal community here.
UPDATE: If National Review can give an opposing view on its pages (namely that large corporations should screen whether their outside law firms represent detainees in the War on Terror), I can certainly link to it. Note that the Minneapolis firm of Dorsey & Whitney is on the list of prominent firms that represent detainees.
I am still on the side of letting them do pro bono work for whoever they want. And I am sitting back and enjoying the prospect of certain activists being put in an uncomfortable position, given their earlier stance on law firms taking on unpopular clients.
