Two Tysons Cor­ner at­tor­neys hired by Rap­pa­han­nock County Su­per­vi­sor Ron Fra­zier — one billing at $400 an hour, the other at $350 an hour — have sub­mit­ted an in­voice of $19,365 to the Rap­pa­han­nock County gov­ern­ment af­ter coun­sel­ing the Jack­son district su­per­vi­sor on a FOIA law­suit he’s not a party to.

County At­tor­ney Art Goff, for that rea­son and oth­ers, said Fra­zier does not have a “right to pay­ment.”

Mark A. Moorstein and Theodora A. String­ham, coun­sels with the Fair­fax of­fice of Of­fit Kur­man, con­tend in two let­ters to Rap­pa­han­nock County Ad­min­is­tra­tor Gar­rey Curry and Goff that, con­sis­tent with Vir­ginia Code 15.2-1520, Fra­zier has a right to their rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

The at­tor­neys’ first let­ter, ad­dressed to Curry and dated May 10, 2019, sought $12,360 for 29 hours of work on be­half of Fra­zier sur­round­ing the so­called Bragg I case (Marian M. Bragg v. Board of Su­per­vi­sors).
