Everyone has to have their causes, and Bruce's new clients believe he has found one:
Most venues have closed their doors, but Gale Fontaine, president of the Florida Arcade and Bingo Association, hired attorney Bruce Rogow of Fort Lauderdale to challenge the law.Does the mere presence of a renowned attorney on a case confer legitimacy on the merits of a particular legal argument?
"He looked at it last week and said he'd let us know by Monday if there was a case," she said. "He called Sunday night."
The association's longtime attorney, Michael Wolf of Fort Lauderdale, said having Rogow take the case was encouraging.
"He's probably one of the top constitutional lawyers in the country," Wolf said. "For him to even take the case gives us hope that it has merit. I don't think he's in the habit of taking cases that don't have merit."
