Council hires special counsel

GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council voted Tuesday to hire a special counsel to represent the City of Greenville on all matters relating to L-3 Communications Integrated Systems.

Following an hour-long executive session, the Council voted unanimously to name attorney Bob Scott as its representative.

In October the Council appointed Scott as the city’s attorney in regards to settlement negotiations with L-3.

Last month, attorneys for L-3 filed an agreed motion to dismiss its pending lawsuit against the city, while at the same time attorneys for the city filed a motion to dismiss the city’s appeal connected to the same suit.

Mayor Steve Reid said Scott’s appointment as special counsel was being conducted under Section 26 of the Greenville City Charter, which allows the City Attorney to appoint assistants or retain special counsel as deemed necessary subject to the approval of the Council, at such compensation as may be fixed by the Council.

The city and L-3 still need to reach a new agreement for the property the defense contractor leases at Majors Field Municipal Airport.
