Lee’s legal defense cost taxpayers $24,000 | www.myajc.com

Cobb County taxpayers spent $24,000 on Commission Chairman Tim Lee’s legal defense against an ethics complaint, plus another $9,600 to cover the bills of two lawyers advising the Board of Ethics on the case.

Lee’s defense team submitted a 13-page invoice detailing about six weeks of work performed on behalf of the chairman last fall.

Although the case ended Nov. 21, Lee’s two attorneys — Ben Mathis and David Cole, both of whom are partners at Freeman Mathis & Gary — submitted their bill for $18,871 to the Cobb County Attorney’s Office Aug. 18.
