"Trial lawyers seek return on contributions to Senate Democrats"



At the Washington Examiner, David Freddoso and Kevin Mooney have been checking into federal-level political contributions by employees of the 15 law firms on NLJ's "Plaintiff's Hot List". The number for 2009 so far is perhaps lower than one might have guessed -- $636,305 -- but of course this is the off-season, campaign-wise if not favors-for-constituents-wise. More than 99 percent of the money has gone to Democrats; presumably the party-switch of Pennsylvania's Arlen Specter has helped sort things out here.
