From nj.com:

DELAWARE TWP. — The $17,239 the township has spent over the past two years defending two lawsuits and a complaint is “inexcusable. There’s no reason to spend that kind of money for nothing,” says Dianne Rankin. “This was a big waste of money.”

The legal fees were accrued because Rankin filed the civil suits and then a complaint with the state Government Records Council. All were avoidable, she says.
