Vigo County Ordered To Pay Attorney Fees

VIGO COUNTY, Ind – Vigo County has been ordered to pay the attorney behind the lawsuit over the county jail, $16,000.

Federal Chief Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson has ordered Vigo County to pay attorney fees to Attorney Michael K. Sutherlin, who represented Jauston Huerta in a class action lawsuit against county officials regarding conditions at the Vigo County Jail.

Sutherlin has asked for more but Vigo County attorneys argued the payment, after a review of hours, the fee should be less.
