legal fees

K Roe (Account suspended) made this Official Information request to University of Auckland

The request was refused by University of Auckland.

From: K Roe (Account suspended)

Dear University of Auckland,

The judgment of Fitzgerald, J awarded the University $18,274 in schedule costs and disbursements for Roe v University of Auckland.

I want to know how much the University is or was to pay in legal fees for that proceeding as they chose to employ external counsel from Gilbert Walker.

Yours faithfully,

K Roe
