City of Phoenix to pay Jack Harris' legal fees
from The Arizona Republic
Phoenix will pay up to $49,000 for Public Safety Manager Jack Harris' legal defense in a lawsuit that claims he is illegally drawing pension benefits while working for the city. The Phoenix City Council voted 5-3 to hire a law firm that specializes in pension law and cover Harris' legal defense, which he has been paying. Elected officials and the public grappled over the issue recently. Those against the city paying Harris' bill say he is being sued as a private individual and should be responsible for the legal costs.
