The practice in a civil lawsuit is the loser must pay the attorney fees of the winner. Now that the Supremes have ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, resolving the suit brought by Michigan residents April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse, their lawyers are now asking to be paid. The bill: almost $2 million. Since the losing side was the state's governor and attorney general acting in official capacity that money will come out of the state budget. Meaning the taxpayers are paying. Gee, thanks guys, for putting up such a vigorous defense on my behalf!
The National Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America have lifted the ban on gay adult leaders. The vote was 79% in favor. Regional governing councils and such things as scout camps cannot discriminate. Each troop can decide whether to permit or continue to ban gay adult leaders, meaning church-based troops can still discriminate.
