HOUSTON — Rusty Hardin, the attorney who drew up a report on reasons to impeach University of Texas regent Wallace Hall, turned in his first invoice in more than seven months Monday, despite terms of his contract requiring monthly billing.
Hardin stopped submitting bills after his Dec. 6 invoice was widely criticized for its excesses. Newspapers around the state expressed shock that Hardin’s firm had run up more than $200,000 in charges in just 10 weeks from late August through October.
His new bill covers November 2013, and adds another $93,728.66 to the tally, keeping him on pace to bill around $700,000 for seven and a half months’ work. Hardin’s contract expired March 31.
