Stacy: What If Brannon Appeals?

Stacy: Question for someone more knowledgable in law than I am: If Brannon and Kelso decide to appeal Hosack's decision is Kennedy obligated to defend the appeal? What happens if he doesn't? Is that the equivalent of conceding, and if so, what happens? My curiousity stems from the financial burden Kennedy now faces, not to mention what he'll face if there is an appeal. Seems like at some point (unless you're a trust fund baby) a person would have to cry “uncle” financially. I'm curious to know what Kennedy's options are.

Question: Can someone answer Stacy's question? Also, I have another one: Should the City Council step in at this point and offer to use taxpayer money to pay for Kennedy's legal bills?
