HOUSTON, Texas -- The state judge in Austin, Texas hearing the school finance case has awarded plaintiffs approximately $10 million dollars in attorney’s fees. The award could be even higher depending on what kind of appeal is brought by the State. Judge John K. Dietz ruled that the award met the legal standard for attorney fee awards in Texas. He has ordered the fees paid by the State and other defendants as the non-prevailing parties. Judge Dietz ruled that the attorney’s fees are “reasonable and necessary” and “equitable and just.”
