UPDATE: All current information has now been reported by the DAR. The DAR took 30 days to report about our case reopened, 17 days to report on the dismissal of the ethics charges, and yet only 3 days to report the city was awarded $5k in legal fees. I was not contacted by the DAR regarding either article in Friday’s (2/22) paper.
Back in January, one of the judge’s requirement for reinstating our case was that PB Internet would pay the City’s expenses incurred from the two extra hearings. We had argued that the charges were over and above that necessary to the proceedings, but the judge evidently didn’t agree. Earlier this afternoon, Judge Ligons ruled that PB Internet should pay $5170.76 of legal fees charged by Attorney Carl Lumley to the City of Poplar Bluff for the two hearings.
The charges included $2400 for drive time to/from St Louis twice (twelve hours of drive time billed at $200/hour). Good thing Lumley doesn’t charge hourly for sleeping at the Holiday Inn.
No one likes to have a judge rule against you but we will continue to plod on; we have 15 days to come up with the money and pay the amount and then our case can continue.
Today’s ruling stated:
Comes now the Court and allows Defendant’s request for attorney’s fees in the amount of $5,170.76. Plaintiff shall have 15 days to pay said amount or Plaintiff’s Response to Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment shall be stricken. So Ordered. – Judge Ligons/cb
I’ll go out on a limb and say that this will be in Wednesday’s DAR (update: it was in Friday’s edition)… Keep an eye on the DAR watch in the top right corner of SEMO.net.

Presented by Kiwanis Club – Poplar Bluff MO and Kiwanis network of school aged children enrolled in Key Club, Builders Club, K Club and other eager volunteers – ALL hoping to survive the nightmares of Kinyon School. Poplar Bluff is coming at you in full force with the science, the urban legends, the slight of hand and of course monsters of all shapes and sizes.
Come join us for a month of weekends filled with ever-changing Spookiliciousness. And we do mean ever changing. Come one week and have fun. Come the next week, get your mind blown by how different it is now. Come another time and you’ll start to doubt your own ability to remember what is real and what isn’t. This school doesn’t teach anything anymore. ITS LEARNING FROM YOUR FEAR AND ITS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER AT SHOWING YOU WHAT SCARES YOU MOST!
If you’re in school and want to participate – you must be a registered member of one of the Kiwanis groups this fall through the The Boys & Girls Club of Poplar Bluff called The Builders Club and K-Kids. High School students must be a member of Key Club. There will be lots of opportunities to be mentored as we build and design and promote this huge event opening the first weekend in October.
Watch for casting calls this summer for key players in the Haunted scenes. Lots of great ideas and warped “out of the box” thinking going on these days. We are all starting to feel a little mutant.
We’ll stay in touch. Even when you don’t know we’re there, heh heh – we’ll be there – silent but deadly!
