Lawyers dominate fundraising for SNAP
Catholic World News - August 01, 2012
Plaintiffs’ lawyers donated more than half of the money collected at a recent Chicago fundraising event for the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), according to The Media Report.
Jeffrey Anderson, the Minnesota lawyer who has won millions of dollars in sex-abuse settlements from Catholic dioceses, was an energetic leader in the fundraising drive, offering to match other donations and personally contributing over $40,000 to the SNAP effort.

The very opposite of pro-bono contributions to society; this is a lawsuit lottery!

I think the lawyers look at donating the SNAP the same way they look at paying rent on their offices or the salaries of their assistants; a necessary business expense.
