Lawmakers Question Cost Of Vernon’s Legal Bills

VERNON (CBS) — Lawmakers are questioning the cost of legal bills for the city of Vernon, which is under investigation for its financial dealings.

Vernon paid a law firm nearly $7 million this year, while more than $2 million went to other lawyers and lobbyists defending the city, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Former Attorney General and Vernon ethics adviser Jon Van De Kamp says the legal fees are too high.

Three ex-city officials have already been convicted of misusing public funds.

    I can’t even get a job.That’s because that lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. Now I’m a bitter aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours] and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection.
