The legal tab continues to grow in the case of the successful challenge to the constitutionality of an ordinance regulating rentals to illegal immigrants.
The Bickel & Brewer Storefront law firm submitted a bill for $850,000 this week in federal court for its share of costs in the case.
A second legal team is expected to submit a similar bill.
Last month, a federal judge ruled that the Farmers Branch ordinance banning illegal immigrants from renting apartments was unconstitutional.
The Dallas suburb has tried for years to enforce a ban on landlords renting to illegal immigrants and a similar ordinance had been struck down before.
Farmers Branch Mayor Tim O'Hare called the latest bill from the Bickel & Brewer firm "ridiculously inflated."
