"A law firm hired by the House of Representatives Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) has filed a motion to withdraw from serving as its counsel. King and Spalding represented the group and last week, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, announced that King and Spalding partner Paul Clement, a former Bush solicitor general, would take the lead. ... Soon after the firm issued that statement, Clement announced he was leaving the firm and joining Bancroft PLLC. In that new role, he will still serve as counsel to the House Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group." (04/25/11)
