“Montgomery County’s expensive private attorneys”

From the Washington Post website of July 15, 2017:

“Montgomery County accumulated excessive legal bills to pursue a lawsuit against the designers and builders of the long-delayed Paul S. Sarbanes Transit Center in Silver Spring.  When all these payments are added together, Montgomery County, in a case that never went to trial, will have paid more than $18 million and will have received a settlement only $6.7 million higher. ….It is absurd to pay $6.5 million for outside counsel for a case that didn’t even go to trial.  “
