ABSURDLY ENORMOUS HOURLY LEGAL FEES IN ROUTINE SEXUAL HARASSMENT CASE AND ALL OTHERS–FORERSHAME
Eric Holder Jr. is billing at $2,295 per hour. It does not matter that he is a partner at the law firm of Covington & Burling. It does not matter that he was formerly the Attorney General of the United States. It does not even matter that clients are volunteering to pay his fees, and it does matter that there are other senior partners in his law firm that charge the same as he does.
By the way, the scope of his legal representation in one recent case was a relatively routine sexual harassment involving a state medical school in Oregon, a resident, and a social worker. In her suit, the alleged victim complains that she notified several doctors on the faculty and that they did nothing.
Legal ethics requires that the fees of lawyers be reasonable. Mr. Holder should be ashamed of himself.
