@Really?? Even though I wasn’t there, I have spoken on several occasions to some people who were involved. It’s my understanding that the settlement was agreed upon Thursday evening, and the state hearing was to take place that Monday morning. It’s also my understanding that the hearing would take about three days.
So, the math looks like this: thousands of tax dollars billed to fire Dr. McNeil, an estimate of $35,000 to pay the Attorney Hart, the $120,000 settlement, and the unknown expenses - which comes to a total of about $220,000.
If the Attorney Hart is paid the normal fee of $250 per hour, including travel and expenses, then the cost of court for three days of the hearing would only be $7,500 dollars.
Your statement is ridiculous. After investing approximately $220,000 you are suggesting that the county settled to save $7500.
