A federal judge Thursday rejected a request for $3.1 million in legal fees for lawyers who worked to overturn the Districtâ€™s handgun ban and instead awarded them $1.1 million, a ruling the D.C. attorney general called a victory for the city.
The six attorneys for plaintiff Dick A. Heller in the historic gun-control litigation had asked the judge to order the city, which lost the case, to pay legal fees totaling $3,126,397. The office of D.C. Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan argued the city should be required to pay $840,166.
