Suing party seeks additional legal fees from city

A prevailing citizen-group in a suit against the City of Statesboro will return to court next month in an effort to recoup more than $18,000 in legal fees. Plaintiffs in the 2010 case, in which a Bulloch County Superior Court judge deemed the city in violation of the Georgia Open Meetings Act, have scheduled a November hearing to recover legal expenses associated with an appeal by the city to the Georgia Supreme Court earlier this year — the Supreme Court, in September, upheld the Superior Court decision. “The issue has been scheduled for a hearing November 1, 9 a.m., at the Superior Court in front of Judge Turner (Turner presided over the case in 2010),” according to Dan Snipes, of Franklin, Taulbee, Rushing, Snipes, and Marsh, who represents the group.
