A visit with Mr. Green My .02

100's

Quite the time last night with Mr. Green and you will want to buy some K.Y. lots of it.

After reading the last story on the Lawsuit on the Mayor and his pals with a bit of talking to others on what they thought was going on … I now believe (and you may not) :

The Lawyers for the defendants are charging around $800 an Hour   That be the lawyers and their staff+ expenses.

That with the number of parties the City will be defending that the Lawyers for the City are willing I guess 10 hours a week, that be $8000 every week every week. The Lawyers will be paid guess who gets to pay?

Gets better. Once the City of Racine taps into the insurance  others start having a say in what happens when, see the Insurance companies may start demanding a settlement before the case hits a court room and the possibility of three times the damages.

That could be a bit of money min of what 10 million 30 million maybe more…  oh and the plaintiffs Lawyers get paid too.

Interesting too at what point do the noncity of Racine officials get their own lawyers?  As well how do they get the money to pay them?

Maybe some of the defendants do not have the $$ to get a lawyer or perhaps fear that they will be found by the Court they acted outside their office? How do they come up with the money? What do they do? Call the other side and see if they can work out a deal?    Maybe former Mayor Becker feels he has no choose but to try and make a deal?  What might he know?

The best part, what happens if the Feds or the State is waiting to see if/when they charge say for Wire Fraud or Campaign Financing issues. Who loses maybe someone flips for that alone? You think Becker wants to go back to jail?

Does John Dickert sleep at night anymore?

 

As a freelance reporter (if only here)   what interesting information will this bring out? This for that alone to keep information out of the public eye I think Settlement will be sooner then latter.
