The University of Minnesota paid "a portion" of Jean Kenney's legal bills in her case with the Minnesota Board of Social Work, according to today's City Pages. A data practice request has revealed that university paid $18,909 for Kenney's attorney, and $3,864 to Dr. Frederic Reamer of Rhode Island College for expert testimony on Kenney's behalf. That comes to a total of $22,773.
For a complaint that was filed over 3 1/2 years ago, these figures seem remarkably low. The question now is: exactly what portion of Kenney's legal bills did the university pay, and who paid for the rest?
