City Seeks Legal Fees From Brannon

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?

Also, it feels much more like Huckleberries with the posts now back in the middle instead of on the right side. We’re getting their, Merry Hucksters. A coupla more tweaks — and this thing will be better than the old site. By far. Now, I’ll move this Wild Card up to the top of the blog and repost it …
