Heller Attorneys Worked Pro Bono, Ask Court To Award Them Fees, Expenses

The attorneys who were victorious in the landmark, watershed, historic (insert the appropriate adjective here) Supreme Court case that defined the meaning of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, have asked a federal judge to award them more than $3.5 million for attorneys’ fees, plus $13,215.30 for expenses and court costs.

"In a motion and memorandum filed with U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, the attorneys said that they had achieved “one of the most profound and important victories available under our system of justice.”
Yep. They all worked pro bono. Translation: They bore the cost of prosecuting this case personally. In my book, they've earned every penney they're asking for.

And then some . . .
