On the eve of my Ninth Circuit oral argument in the AOL cy pres case, Legal Newsline covers the cy pres controversy a bit sloppily, quoting me without interviewing me. WLF notes the recent Google Buzz settlement approval, where the slush fund for Chief Judge Ware was over $6 million. Most of the money was given to Google lobbyists, but Ware assigned $500,000 to a local university where he has affiliations. And if I knew he was going to give $500,000 to a non-profit objector to shut down their objection, I might have applied for some of that cy pres money if I could have thought of a way to do so without seeming like a hypocrite.
