BIRM­ING­HAM, Ala. — A mostly white Al­abama city that tried to form its own school sys­tem must pay nearly $850,000 to at­tor­neys rep­re­sent­ing black peo­ple who suc­cess­fully fought the move, a fed­eral judge ruled.

U.S. District Court Judge Made­line Haikala ruled Mon­day that the NAACP Le­gal De­fense Fund and at­tor­ney U.W. Cle­mon were due le­gal fees and ex­penses from Gar­den­dale, which she said “acted in bad faith” when it at­tempted the split, al.com re­ported.
