RI City Attorney Costs Pass $1 Million
The attorney fees for various legal battles in the city of Cranston have surpassed $1 million. The Providence Journal reports that multiple lawsuits on a wide range of law enforcement issues have sent legal bills skyrocketing. Costs include legal fees, administrative pay while out on leave, and settlement costs.
The multitude of legal issues within the City’s police department were detailed in a scathing RISP report. The actual cost to the taxpayer is still being calculated by the City’s Auditor. Further details will be forthcoming when the audit is complete.
