Madison County Treasurer Kurt Prenzler is asking attorneys involved in a class-action lawsuit seeking restitution for victims of rigged property tax sales in Madison County to refuse any legal fees recovered from the county.  This move comes after a Madison County Board Member accused Prenzler of using the suit to benefit his friend and adviser, Attorney Don Weber.

Two weeks ago, Kelly Tracy accused Prenzler of using the class-action suit involving illegal tax sales under the Fred Bathon administration to assure several attorneys, including Weber, get paid more than $1-million.  Prenzler tells The Big Z Weber doesn’t have a problem with his request.

The lawsuit names a number of tax buyers, Madison County and various elected officials.  The suit alleges key county officials saw what was going on in Bathon’s office but did nothing to stop it.
