County Executive Laura Neuman issued a statement, calling the incident a "sordid chapter" in the county's history.
At the time of the settlement, Hamner's attorney was told he would have to appeal for legal costs in court.
That day has come, and John M. Singleton of Lutherville, Hamner's attorney, is requesting a total of $176,152.59, The Baltimore Sun reports. The sum comes from 338 hours of time spent on the case, at a rate of $495 per hour, plus additional costs for a paralegal, parking, transcripts and other fees, The Sun reported.
Whether the sum will be paid by the county will be decided by a U.S. District Court in Baltimore.
