In papers filed last Friday National Organization for Marriage seeks reimbursement from the government for legal fees in the amount of $691,025.05. I wonder where they found that extra nickel. This is the amount that NOM claims to have spent to prosecute the IRS for inadvertently providing a third party with an unredacted donor schedule.
NOM lost this case in summary judgment. The organization was confined to receive actual damages plus reasonable attorneys’ fees. NOM and the government reached a damages settlement in the amount of $50,000.
Presumably someone, either the judge or the US Attorney, is going to request time logs. Additionally there should be some discovery regarding fee arrangements and what was actually disbursed.
