A Couple Of Questions About Allegheny County's Courtroom Strategy For The Assessments Case

A couple of questions:

Which law firm recently hired two former clerks to Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge R. Stanton Wettick?

Which law firm was hired by Rich Fitzgerald to defend the indefensible in the assessment litigation assigned to Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge R. Stanton Wettick?

It might be worthwhile to determine when that firm became aware it would be engaged to represent the new Allegheny County administration in Judge Wettick's courtroom, and how many former clerks of Judge Wettick that firm had employed before the assessment litigation commenced.

BONUS QUESTION: Has anyone informed the public about how much taxpayers will pay a law firm to help Rich Fitzgerald try to dodge a unanimous Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling?

For Christ's sake every newspaper and TV station in town should hang their heads in shame. Bad enough they just repeat Fitz spin (and Onorato before) without questioning or explanation, getting beat by a blog on something like this is just pathetic

no offense to Infinonymous

On a side note, I found yesterday that Mike Lamb's LinkedIn page lists his primary employer as bankruptcy firm Campbell and Levine. He's been working for them since March 2009. I'm supporting Lamb for mayor, but it seems strange that he's holding down two jobs. Although I guess Chelsa's doing the same on the county side, so maybe it's OK. Not to mention Burgess, but anybody can do three jobs poorly.

For those who werent quick enough to see that first comment before it was taken down, it recommended a Pulitzer Prize. The next comment convenently names the law firm. Both signed Vannevar. So here is another question. Is this Vannevar a sock puppet?
