Christian legal firm representing legislators suing to halt Troopergate

Liberty Legal Institute is representing five state legislators suing to stop the Alaska legislature's investigation into Troopergate, the Anchorage Daily News reports.

Troopergate is an investigation of whether Sarah Palin dismissed a public safety commissioner because he wouldn't fire a state trooper who went through an divorce with her sister.

Sean Cockerham writes that Liberty Legal Institute lists its guiding principles as limited government and promotion of Judeo-Christian values, but it's unclear in the article how the latter is involved in the case.
