A recent article in the Topeka Capital Journal listed the various legal fees the City of Topeka paid over the past year. Somewhat to our surprise, Stumbo Hanson appeared in the list for the grand total of forty-five bucks. We knew about it, sure; we just thought the minimal nature of the payment would not get us in any newspapers. This amount certainly was in sharp contrast to the amount paid to other firms. Obviously, we can’t comment on what the representation was about, but we can say it involved work proportional to the fee paid, and certainly not the same level of controversy as some of the others on the list.
