LRC to review legal fees for re-districting

FRANKFORT — Attorneys for lawmakers who successfully sued to have a legislative re-districting plan ruled unconstitutional have negotiated an amount for their legal fees that a Franklin Circuit Judge ordered the legislature to pay.

Legislative Research Director Bobby Sherman confirmed Wednesday the lawyers for the plaintiffs have submitted a price for their legal services, but he declined to say how much it is and said the LRC will review the offer before deciding to approve it.

Sherman said he’s “been in contact with counsel and I kind of know where it stands,” but he declined to name an amount.

He said the question isn’t whether the LRC — made up of legislative leaders from both parties and both chambers and co-chaired by Senate President David Williams and House Speaker Greg Stumbo — will pay the fees but instead if the LRC will agree to the negotiated amount.

Sherman said if the LRC should object to the submitted amount, Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd would then determine the amount.
