Putnam County Attorney Jennifer Bumgarner said the lawsuit will not cost the county anything, because the firm that many neighboring counties have hired, and which advised Putnam officials — Napoli Shkolnik, based in New York City — is working on a contingency basis, meaning it will be paid from any settlement.
“They have absolutely agreed to provide us the resources, and that they will do the legwork and look through the documents themselves,” said Bumgarner.
