Terrinee Gundy

Atlanta City Council president Felicia Moore says Atlanta Municipal Court Judge Terrinee Gundy, right, should repay the city for legal fees her attorney charged to defend her in an ongoing ethics investigation.

Channel 2's Richard Belcher reports that Atlanta taxpayers picked up the $600-an-hour legal tab for Gundy's attorney, Frank Strickland.

The city fired Strickland, who billed the city $25,000 to represent Gundy in a hearing before the Judicial Qualifications Committee.

Belcher says City Council members were unaware that Strickland was defending Gundy on the city's dime.

Channel 2 found out through the state open records law that City Attorney Nina Hickson fired Strickland just days after Channel 2 and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution discovered the unusual payments to Strickland.

Strickland's fees were approved by the outgoing city attorney who was hired by Mayor Kasim Reed.

City Council member Felicia Moore told Belcher that Gundy's attorney's fees was a "personal issue", and the city should be reimbursed for her attorney's fees.

Gundy is under investigation for showing up late to court and canceling court sessions so she could attend events such as a Super Bowl rally for the Atlanta Falcons.

So far, no charges have been filed against Judge Gundy.

    Naw that is where Cobb County school district fudged the test scores and also the number of kids that got into fights and did drugs to keep getting federal funding from the government. Then the superintendent admitted that wasn't all the numbers because it would have taken up toooo much time to include all of them.

    Yep I saw that and said someone got mad and came to the media with that story. We all know they fudge the numbers at white schools and no one says nothing. Oh yeah and one white boy in Gwinnett County teacher flunked him because he slept in class and even told mom. Mom did nothing to the boy but went to the media on the teacher as if the teacher was wrong when her son got an "F". As if no one flunks bad azz Billy. Folks are sick to think that there are no dumb white kids in these white schools. They passing their asses. The media even asked him was it true he was sleeping in class he said yes. They asked him why he slept in class he thought it was a joke.

    I already know... I volunteered with kids in the 3rd grade and thebmost disruptive ones were yt with the exception of 1 Asian girl...the teacher would do their work for them and passed them right along. I would have been handing out incompletes and F's to those little disrespectful monsters.
