Item: Cd’A seeks fees from Brannon: City Council could decide Tuesday about paying Kennedy’s fees/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d’Alene Press
More Info: The city of Coeur d’Alene is seeking around $36,000 in legal fees and costs from 2009 general election challenger Jim Brannon. Brannon has objected, claiming that the city doesn’t have the legal grounds to request money from him since the election challenge wasn’t frivolous. Meanwhile, the Coeur d’Alene City Council may take action next week on whether the city will pay around $105,000 for Seat 2 incumbent Mike Kennedy’s legal fees.
Question: Should Jim Brannon pay the legal fees incurred by the city as part of his long-running lawsuit to overturn his 3-vote loss to Mike Kennedy?
