Who’s paying this ABA Cost?

OK, as regular readers know, I’m not a huge fan of the ABA. So I didn’t feel badly to learn about this somewhat underpublicized announcement (6/23/06) about the ABA’s agreement to pay $185,000 for violating a 1996 antitrust consent decree.  From the  Department of Justice press release:

The consent decree prohibited the ABA from misusing the law school accreditation process. The Department also filed a proposed order and a stipulation in which the ABA acknowledges the violations alleged in the Department’s petition and agrees to reimburse the United States $185,000 in fees and costs incurred in the Department’s investigation. The proposed order is subject to court approval.

I guess if ABA dues go up next year, we’ll know why.  Seriously, who pays when the ABA gets itself into this type of a mess?
