Amici footnotes: Usually more persuasive if they don't match brief's guiding hand
It's not surprising that the Liberty Counsel, in its DOMA-defending amicus curiae, cite "ex-gay" researcher Joseph Nicolosi as an expert. That was pretty much a given.
But what does seeming startlingly silly, even for LC, is that they also cite a book written by Mat Staver -- the very same Liberty Counsel president who tops the very same brief!
What next, L.C: Gonna use one noted Dr. Seuss as an unbiased expert in The People v. Green Eggs, Ham, et. al?
