Pro bono work to uphold constitutional principles is a high calling and in the finest tradition of the legal profession. It is unfortunate that many do not recognize that fact.

Ray Campbell

Verrilli's work for Padilla was done on a pro bono basis. He didn't get paid. He did it because it was the right thing to do.

To make unpaid pro bono service a reason to oppose a nominee sends exactly the wrong signal to the legal profession. We need lawyers to honor the ideals of the profession. They shouldn't be penalized by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee because they did the right thing.

Rcfwilmette

Sessions needs remedial CLE. After all these years he still does not understand what lawyers do.
