Interesting tweet related to

University of Minnesota

General Counsel's Office:

Jenna Ross ByJenna Tidbit from proposed #UMN budget: a $145,000 increase for the Office of General Counsel “in recognition of increased outside legal costs”

See: "There he goes again..."

Costs of legal services is $5.7 million to outside counsel in 2009 in addition to the salaries and benefits paid to the 18 [sic] attorneys in the Office of the General Counsel at the University--see p. 13 of the 2009 Annual Report of the General Counsel.

Perhaps better legal advice by our General Counsel could save the U some money?

Unnecessary litigation costs money.

See: Jimmy Williams, Light Rail, GopherJackets, State Open Meeting law, ripping off the residents, etc.
