Harriet Miers, You've Been Served!
Harriet Miers fought the law -- and the lawmakers ain't havin' none of it, finally. Miers, the former White House counsel and Dallas city council member now keeping a chair warm as a partner at Locke Liddell & Sapp on Ross Avenue, is named in a federal lawsuit filed today by House Democrats tired of her dodging subpoenas issued by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. Also named in the suit, which involves the U.S. Attorneys' firings last year, is White House Chief of Josh Bolten. The civil contempt complaint can be read in its entirety here. --Robert Wilonsky
