Bloomberg looking for unemployed attorneys, paying $20/hr
"Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the gun-control group co-chaired by Mayor Bloomberg, is looking for out-of-work lawyers to research doctrine related to the Trayvon Martin case.
Laurin Grollman, the mayor's senior counsel for firearms policy, sent out the following email, forwarded by a reader:
From: Grollman, Laurin
Looking for lawyers who are out of work who might want to do paid work for mayors against illegal guns (www.mayorsagainstillegalguns.org) for the next few days/week or so, starting ASAP (today if possible, and working over the weekend if possible). $20/hour. Work is doing a 50-state survey of castle doctrine expansion laws, in light of Trayvon Martin shooting. Interesting and timely stuff, but somewhat complicated.
Senior Counsel for Firearms Policy
Office of the Mayor of New York City"
Now, THAT is a tightwad!
David, I think you, Alan Gura and a bunch more of pro 2nd Amend. lawyers ought to apply for those jobs. I'll bet the results would not be what Bloomers is expecting.

What's sad is that he is probably going to get a lot of takers in this legal employment market.

The folks over at Calguns made an interesting discovery. Apparently Laurin B. Grollman is the same attorney who's listed as "of counsel" in an NSSF amicus brief in McDonald v. Chicago.

Let's hope this becomes an example of "you get what you pay for."
