 So the government pays somebody to sue itself?

A It doesn't sound right, I admit. When these laws were lobbied through, they were lobbied by a lot of these public-interest law firms, who didn't have a lot of sources of income. I think the thought of the Congress was, if they have a legitimate case to make, should they be forced to somehow swallow the cost, or should the society as a whole -- that's what the government is -- pay them for doing it? So they decided they should be paid for doing it, if they're successful.
