Sisyphus: It Ain’t About Money

Re: McCrory lawyer wants witness fee of $21.27 back

Sisyphus: The “real” point is that McRory's attorney exercised the authority of the court by issuing a subpoena (a court order to appear) to assure Christa's attendance at the hearing. The rules required he provide a witness fee to cover travel expenses. Had she failed she would have been held ….wait for it….in contempt. Mr. Hazel's comment doesn't make a case that it was a mistake, but that it was a boneheaded mistake. The cost in attorney time to request the refund is far more than the amount requested. It ain't about the money.

Question: What is the attempt by Bill McCrory's attorney to get back the witness fee from Christa Hazel really about?
