Santa Fe New Mexican [cached]
Lawyers with the Manhattan-based Brennan Center have donated "thousands of hours" to help defend the ordinance, according to associate counsel Paul Sonn.
"We are doing this because the city requested assistance," said Sonn, associate counsel with the Brennan Center."We care deeply about the issues, and we want to help the working poor."
Sonn added: "We know the other side spent $250,000 on the lawsuit.Our side spent nothing.We rely on people to volunteer their time.It's a real shoestring operation, trying to persuade economists and lawyers to help us."
Sonn estimated that the Weiss firm and the Brennan Center donated "thousands of hours" to help the city of Santa Fe in the minimum-wage lawsuit.
"If we had the resources the other side does, we could hire more experts and do a lot more," he said.
