Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In plaintiff's request for writ of mandamus seeking to compel the City of Anaheim to litigate tax assessment proceedings without the assistance of outside counsel retained pursuant to a contingency fee agreement claiming that the fee arrangement violates a government lawyer's duty of neutrality, trial court's denial of the writ petition is affirmed as, Clancy does not bar contingency fee lawyers from assisting government lawyers as co-counsel in ordinary civil litigation such as this, and the tax assessment proceeding is a civil administrative action that does not require the delicate weighing of values described in Clancy.
