Amici footnotes: Usually more persuasive if they don't match brief's guiding hand

by Jeremy Hooper

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!
