Blogger's Attorney Bills Democrat Political Director $17K in Fees

Tuesday, attorney John Sparks of the law firm Austin & Sparks sent a letter to the legal counsel of Georgia Democratic Party political director Rashad Richey.

The correspondence essentially says that actions have consequences. The action of filing a frivolous lawsuit results in the following consequence:

Rashad Richey and his attorneys get to foot the $17,232.45 bill.

My attorneys have agreed to accept a compromise amount of $15,000, if paid by Friday, June 8th at 2PM. If not, Austin & Sparks goes to court, files a Motion for Attorneys' Fees pursuant to O.C.G.A 9-15-14 next week for the full amount of $17,232.45.

Below is the letter for public record:

Sparks Letter to Richey's Attorneys Washington and Lewis 2012.06.05

The lesson to be learned here is this . . .

. . . Don't file frivolous lawsuits in court.

And that concludes class for the day.
