LRSD legal fees

Posted By on Wed, Dec 24, 2008 at 7:07 AM

This request seems perfectly straightforward. Somehow, I'm guessing it will be viewed differently in some quarters.

Subject: act 395 attorney's fees for lrsd

jeremy and scott - as you know, act 395 of 2007 (ark code ann 6-20-416) as amended by act 2 of the first extraordinary session in 2008 confers upon the arkansas department of education, in consultation with the attorney general, the authority to reimburse the pulaski school districts for legal fees (of up to $250,000 per district) incurred for seeking unitary status. lrsd qualifies for reimbursement, having sought unitary status before october 30, 2007 and having been declared unitary by the district court before december 31, 2008. lrsd has incurred legal fees in excess of $250,000 in its pursuit of unitary status. on behalf of lrsd, i request that the district be reimbursed for $250,000 in legal fees in accordance with act 395 and act 2. i'll be happy to provide copies of the relevant pleadings and orders, all well as copies of the statements for legal fees paid by lrsd. please let me know what further steps i must take to develop a proposed reimbursement agreement for submission to the legislative council. thanks. ch

 just to make sure everyone understands - the reimbursement i'm seeking for lrsd under act 395 would go directly to lrsd, not to my law firm. ch
