The Citadel's Legal Battles Continue

Attorneys who fought The Citadel's all-male admissions policy face another battle with the state of South Carolina, this time over legal fees. On July 7, the lawyers requested that a federal judge grant them $6.7 million for the 23,406 hours they spent on litigation that took nearly five years. The state spent 25,385 hours defending The Citadel and used 168 attorneys and assistants while the other side used 49. Yet state attorney Bobby Hood claims that the fees which attorneys have asked for are "full of excess." Val Vojdik, an attorney who challenged The Citadel, said of the military school and its attorneys, "They fought us every step of the way. They fought us on everything."
