Joe and Valerie’s Lawyer
Duke University Law School Professor Erwin Chemerinsky is an at least weekly guest on my radio program along with my colleague Professor John Eatsman from Chapman University Law School.
Erwin has also signed on as counsel to Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame.
I asked him about the case yesterday. Here’s the start of the interview:
HH: But first, Erwin, you’re of counsel to Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame?
EC: I am. I’m co-counsel in their lawsuit against Dick Cheney, Lewis Libby and Karl Rove. It was filed last Thursday in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
HH: Please tell me you’re getting paid, Erwin.
EC: I’m not. I’m doing this pro bono.
HH: Unbelievable. Now Erwin, of course it’s all nonsense, and Joe Wilson…what are you going to do when he gets on the stand and people try and reconcile his eight different versions of what he said and did?
EC: Oh, I don’t think there’s eight different versions. I think we have an extremely strong case.
