Following is an excerpt:

Epstein Becker Green attorney Paul DeCamp, a former DOL Wage and Hour Division administrator and colleague of [Eugene] Scalia’s at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP, said criticism of Scalia’s work for employers “fails to understand the role of a lawyer in our system.”

“By that same logic, a public defender should never be a judge,” he said. “Public defenders aren’t out there because they like crime. They’re out there representing a client in our adversarial justice system.”
