The lawyer who asked a federal judge to pay his legal team $4.4 million this week for representing two brothers in a civil rights case settled this month wants $132,000 more for past and potential legal work on the related Rosenthal contempt case.
Lloyd Kelley filed the request Wednesday asking U.S. District Judge Kenneth Hoyt to approve $31,625 for work performed by him, another lawyer and legal assistants on the dimension of the lawsuit that led to Rosenthal’s resignation.
Wednesday’s request also notes that county commissioners approved $227,000 to cover legal fees for the defense of Rosenthal and others.
And compared to that, this is a mere trifle. Well, there’s still the other fee request the story mentioned, but that’s totally separate. Any lawyers out there want to comment on the reasonableness of these numbers? Thanks.
