King & Spalding Withdraw from Defending DOMA

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

After a week of weltering criticism, King & Spalding has decided to withdraw from defending DOMA on behalf of the U.S. House of Representatives. The reason: the process used for vetting the assignment was “inadequate.” Given the concerns that Katherine Francke and others have raised regarding the attempt to muzzle employees not working on the DOMA litigation from working to repeal the law, I think this is an understatement.
