COAST and its counsel are occasionally the subject of criticism for seeking redress of our client's constitutional and statutory rights and seeking reimbursement of COAST's attorneys fees associated with that litigation. We take such criticism in stride, as the civil rights laws are meant to protect folks across the political spectrum from the excesses of their government leaders.
Still, we found it amusing when we learned that former County Commissioner Democrat David Pepper had sued the City of North College Hill, and demanded that they pay his client's attorneys fees. The suit is to overturn term limits for the Mayor and the Council there, or at least the retrospective application thereof.
It is, after all, hypocritical of Pepper to seek payment of his fees by the municipality he is suing, as he has vociferously criticized COAST for doing exactly the same thing.
