The [Monday] Papers

"Under former Mayor Richard M. Daley, City Hall paid millions of dollars in legal fees to Katten Muchin Rosenman, the law firm where Daley now works," the Sun-Times reports.

"But under Daley's successor, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the firm has seen its City Hall business fall sharply, records show.

"Last year, Chicago taxpayers paid Katten Muchin $139,964 - the lowest amount the firm has been paid by City Hall in more than 16 years."

Surely that's just a coincidence.


"Emanuel administration officials won't talk about Katten's decline in legal work since Daley left office."

Not even to say it's a coincidence?


"Daley has had a long relationship with Katten Muchin, particularly with one of the firm's partners, Terry Newman. Daley and Newman have been friends and regular dinner companions for two decades, and Newman remains in the former mayor's inner circle.

"A month after Daley left office, he joined Katten Muchin 'as Of Counsel to the firm, where he draws on his vast knowledge, experience and relationships globally to contribute to the continued growth of the firm,' according to Katten's website.

"The law firm also hired Daley's former City Hall press secretary, Jacquelyn Heard, and deputy press secretary, Jodi Kawada."
