Cuccinelli to Represent Rand Paul In Class-Action Suit Against Obama Administration Surveillance

January 5th, 2014

Say what? At this point, I’m pretty jaded to things like this, but I did a double-take when I saw this headline.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli leaves office Saturday, but he will continue to take on what he considers overreaching by the federal government.

Cuccinelli will be the lead lawyer in a suit filed by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., against the Obama administration over the data-collection policies of the National Security Agency, according to The Associated Press.

I previously blogged about Paul’s class-action lawsuit against the NRA. I could not have predicted that former-AG Cooch would represent him.

The article doesn’t say what law firm will be involved, but what?!
