Prodigy was refering to the lawsuit.
I know but since the attorney general's office is a branch of state government which is paid to litigate matters such as these, it essentially costs nothing extra for the state to defend the law in the suit. It's better than the attorney general and his deputies just sitting in their offices drawing their salaries.
Prodigy was merely suggesting that the state will lose more money
But it actually won't lose money given what I wrote above plus the additional revenue from the fines. Lowenstein is just using that claim of money lost as a ruse to sway the public to the ESA's side. Remember you are reading an ESA press release, i.e. a propaganda piece, not an independent news story. The only side which will effectively pay legal fees is the ESA and its members.
I can't wait to hear about how you're actually right
The wait is over.This comment was edited on Sep 14, 21:36.
