Legal Fees Denied in Landmark Voting Rights Case


Lawyers who successfully challenged a key provision of the Voting Rights Act can’t recover $2 million in legal fees from the federal government, Judge John Bates of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled Wednesday.

What's being said

  • Truth

    Good decision by the court! Pay your own bills, Shelby County.

  • ColorBlindJustice

    Bert Rein should appeal Judge Bates‘ poorly reasoned decision. The government never should have dragged out its losing case, and U.S. taxpayers should both pay Shelby County taxpayers AND hold the need for that payment against Eric Holder and the rest of the race-baiting Obama administration.
