That’s what Rudy G. is apparently asking for from the Trump campaign. Sounds a lot like what the drug lawyers were asking for in the 80s and 90s...
Rudolph W. Giuliani, who has helped oversee a string of failed court challenges to President Trump’s defeat in the election, asked the president’s campaign to pay him $20,000 a day for his legal work, multiple people briefed on the matter said.
The request stirred opposition from some of Mr. Trump’s aides and advisers, who appear to have ruled out paying that much, and it is unclear how much Mr. Giuliani will ultimately be compensated.
Since Mr. Giuliani took over management of the legal effort, Mr. Trump has suffered a series of defeats in court and lawyers handling some of the remaining cases have dropped out.
A $20,000-a-day rate would have made Mr. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who has been Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer for several years, among the most highly compensated lawyers anywhere.
In local news, the 11th Circuit has been conducting Zoom arguments all week. You can watch them live-streamed from a link on the website. It’s a great opportunity to see appellate arguments. I presented oral argument today on Zoom and did one a few months ago (via phone, not Zoom). Zoom is definitely much better than phone. And although I really dislike Zoom for some district court proceedings like sentencings or evidentiary hearings, Zoom seems to work well for appellate arguments. There’s nothing like doing it in the courtroom and I hope we go back to it soon, but appeal by Zoom isn’t so bad. It’s certainly a lot less stressful.
