Kentucky To Pay Over $1.1 Million In Legal Fees To Same-Sex Marriage Attorneys
The state of Kentucky has been ordered by the federal Western District Court of Kentucky to pay $1,115,632.96 in attorney fees and costs to the lawyers who fought for marriage equality in the state.
The losing side of a court battle often has to pay the winning side's legal fees. And as we know, the good guys won this one.
Lots of states avoided this by seeing the writing on the wall and dropping opposition to same-sex marriage.
Kentucky did not have the good sense to do that.
