Former Deputy Sheriff Scott Milliman filed a wrongful termination suit against the Keith Nygren Sheriff’s regime.
The lawyer’s fees started for McHenry County in August, 2011.
They have been getting higher every month.
Most of the legal fees have gone to James Sotos.
The total is over $307,000 now.
The deductible is $250,000, meaning the county pays nothing after the $250,000 has been paid by the taxpayers.
Presumably Milliman’s lawyer’s fees have climbed into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
If Milliman wins his case, County taxpayers will pick up that cost, too.
What’s going on in the case?
