The state of Georgia has received the payments to cover the lawyer fees for the lawsuits for the 2020 election filed by former President Donald Trump. Cobb and DeKalb counties, which held much of the nation’s attention during the election, have been paid a total of $15,554 to cover costs until June 1.

The cases filed by Trump were eventually dismissed, and the election results were found to be accurate by multiple audits. Still, both counties had to request almost $17,000 in legal fees from both Trump and David Shafer, chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, for their role in the lawsuits.

Randy Evans, the attorney who is representing Trump, his campaign, and Shafer and also partly responsible for the lawsuit, spoke on behalf of their clients.

“The two motions [for attorneys’ fees] have been withdrawn. There was no settlement agreement,” Evans told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The taxpayers in DeKalb and Cobb have been fully reimbursed. There are no other details because there are no other details.”
