Greenville City Council Hires Special Counsel

A new attorney will be handling negotiations between the city of Greenville and a defense contractor. 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.

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