As mentioned in the blog post, the ACLU is representing us pro bono. We have also been putting in
staff time as needed. We paid Cooley at the beginning of
the case to help us support the ACLU. Those costs
(in FY14-15) were within our allocated FY14-15 legal budget. In June, Cooley generously offered to
continue representing us pro bono going forward. Therefore, in FY15-16, we are not incurring outside counsel
costs because both ACLU and Cooley are working pro bono for us.
Hope that clears things up.
