Oh the irony…Olson and Boies file to make Protect Marriage pay their fees

Ya gotta love this.

The lawyers that won the Prop 8 trial in California are filing to make Protect Marriage pay their fees (and ADF whines):

Attorneys representing two California gay couples in the federal Proposition 8 case may seek to recoup mounting legal fees from their opponents if an appeals court upholds U.S. district judge Vaughn Walker's landmark decision.

In court filings this week, the attorneys requested extended time to consider fees and court costs but have also asked Prop. 8 supporters for an expedited response in the matter — which they opposed in a Wednesday filing.

“Plaintiffs seek to drastically shorten [our] time to respond to that motion so that they have more time to prepare an application for attorney’s fees in the event this Court does not grant their motion to enlarge time,” Alliance Defense Fund attorney Brian Raum wrote. “Such a burden shift is unwarranted.”
