Jail plaintiffs object to attorneys' settlement

Judge Jennifer Coffman this morning ordered plaintiffs attorneys in a class-action lawsuit against the city of Lexington to answer by Thursday objections to a controversial settlement by several jail workers who are part of the class action.

According to court documents, though, it appears none of the jail employees filed the proper paperwork to object specifically to the amount of the attorney's fees they are going to have to pay to the lawyers.
