He [Mayor Boughton] added that the city's legal fees alone probably reached nearly $1 million, while court documents indicate the plaintiffs' attorneys racked up more than $5.9 million in costs.
Boughton, New Haven Register 03.10.11
Boughton said in his deposition that the suit had cost Danbury about $500,000 with the town responsible for a $100,000 deductible.
At this point, given Boughton's inconsistent comments (AGAIN), maybe someone should file an Freedom of Information request with the city and get the real figure on the city attorney fees.
In light of Boughton's inconsistent statements to the public, and the 400,000 dollar settlement in this case, THE PUBLIC HAS A RIGHT TO VIEW THE DEPOSITION FROM BOUGHTON, McLACHLAN and CHIEF BAKER...make the depositions available to the public.
