Problems with reading comprehension, or just a pair of typos "Yeti'? It's $50,000 and $120,000.
And is that a rhetorical question? You seem to be quite the legal brainiac, so you should know the fee split in Federal Court is pretty standard.

No, Ken. I looked up MJ's profile and read some previous posts and copied one here. Message: get a grip and return from blogs to reality.

Congratulations to city council: your brilliant decision to reject a $30,000 cost the taxpayers almost double for less than a one year float. That's a heavy interest rate. settled for $50,000. Thanks for the extra $20K!

"police beat coordinator Kasi Beutel triumphantly notified the Downtown Organization that tickets for skateboarding on State Street were now $150."
Now that's 'rich', but "Skateboarding is not a crime." Or at least it shouldn't be.http://www.onionskin.com/venice75/dog...
I understand the SBPD has let this one back out into 'the yard' a little (New DUI checkpoint arrest by the new 'larger than life' KB. Back to her old tricks I suppose.

The new criminal case is pure BS (and a conflict of interest for Dudley's office as the harbor Patrol Cop (officer Stetson) is married to a high ranking District Attorney in South County) It was a set up to attempt to cut the legs out from under DeNunzio's Federal Civil Rights law suit. (Interestingly, one must ask: If DeNunzio was drunk, why didn't he trip and fall when running instead of a sober LEO who is trained in the art of foot pursuit?) Only a week earlier, Federal Court Judge George Wu ruled that Santa Barbara District Attorney Contract employee Lessor J. michaels had violated DeNunzio's 4th Amendment Rights along with Tudor and 3 other SBPD cops with his illegal blood draw. Well it didn't work, and the new charge won't stick in court either. As for those who criticize my lawyering results, consider this: the veteran (Jerry Cox) who was beat and tazered at the Trader Joe's http://www.independent.com/news/2013/... ) had Sanger and Sweesyn represent him, and his case settled last May for $30,000. DeNunzio settled for more than 4 times that amount in spite of the fact that he is a less sympathetic plaintiff than the veteran's case.

Judges could easily safe millions and aid the support staff simply by no longer codling District Attorney's and start granting meritorious defense motions dismissing weak prosecutions, and preventing serial trials of weak cases after hung juries. If the DA won't stop prosecuting weak cases and judges don't stop vindictive prosecutions by certain junior DDAs with poor judgement like Justin Nathan Greene, then they are compounding, not solving the problem.

I'm proud of the legal victory that my friends and colleagues William Makler and Robin Unander have obtained on behalf of the class of people that they represented in this civil action to restore the good name of the many citizens who were falsely accused by CHP officers.
