SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Former Salt Lake County Mayor Nancy Workman may soon be back in court -- but this time on the offensive.

After her February trial, Workman billed the county for 196-thousand dollars in attorney fees. Her attorney Greg Skordas said Workman may now have no other option than to sue the county for the money.

Skordas said a lawsuit will likely be filed within the next 30 days, after county officials offered to pay only 15-percent of Workman's bill.

John Soltis with the district attorney's office said the county has reviewed the claim and is now waiting for a response from Workman to the county's lesser offer.

Soltis said the county's position is that the fees Workman has requested are clearly excessive.
