MONTGOMERY (RNS) A federal judge has ordered Alabama to pay more than half a million dollars in lawyer fees and expenses in connection with the suit to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state judicial building rotunda.
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson gave the state up to 30 days to pay $549,430.53 to lawyers for people who sued to remove the monument, placed in the rotunda by Roy Moore, the state’s ousted chief justice.
Plaintiff’s lawyers originally asked for nearly $850,000 in fees and expenses, but reached a settlement for the lower amount.
