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.
