The Clintons' request for reimbursement of attorneys' fees The Clintons were in the news a few days ago, for filing a request for reimbursement of attorneys' fees incurred by them during the Whitewater investigation/fiasco/m-r-w-conspiracy (choose your own word). If you want a glimpse into the current thinking of the special judicial panel that rules on such requests, see today's opinion denying (for the most part) former Sec'y of Labor Alexis Herman's request. John Dean (I can't quite decide what to think of him these days) had a piece on this the other day in Findlaw, arguing that the Clintons are clearly entitled to reimbursement unless the political fix is in.
