Donations to last year’s auction in

Dr. and Mrs. Jarvis Miller, a flight to

The auction, which will be in Stu

KAMU will begin its auction at 8

said Hyden. The event lasted three
nights last year, she said, but it will
be expanded this year because of the
good support by donors in the past.
The auction will be organized so
that merchandise will be posted on
one of six boards, Hyden said.
Four of the boards will each con

Inm a tes ’ legal fees

United Press International
WASHINGTON — The Supreme
'ourt Monday let stand a ruling that
te state of Texas must pay $39,000
t fees to a lawyer representing in-
tates who had filed suit to overturn
ules against prisoners helping each
ther on legal matters.
The justices declined to hear an
ppeal by Texas from a ruling stating
must pay the fees under a 1976
tderal statute even though the ser-
ices were performed before the law
wk effect.
The case arose in 1968 when some
exas prisoners filed a class action
uit contesting the Texas Depart-
lent of Corrections prohibition of
dsoners giving each other legal
The prisoners lost in federal dis-
ict court, but the 5th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals reversed the deci
sion, holding the state could not en
force such a rule until it provided an
adequate legal assistance program
for prisoners.
But the state corrections depart
ment continued to enforce its pro
hibition and, in 1972, the prisoners
renewed their suit. Federal courts
ordered the state to allow any mutual
legal aid on any civil legal matter.
William Bennett Turner, the
lawyer for the prisoners, then sought
legal fees under the Civil Rights
Attorney’s Fees Awards Act of 1976.
The law took effect in October of
that year — two months before the
final arguments were made in the
case before the 5th Circuit.
A federal district court awarded
the attorney $39,000. A three-judge
panel of the 5th Circuit affirmed the

award and sent the case back to the
lower court to award a “reasonable
fee” for the time taken to pursue the
Texas Attorney General Mark
White appealed to the U.S. Sup
reme Court, arguing the lawyer fees
could not be awarded for services
rendered before the effective date of
the act.
White maintained the 11th
Amendment of the U.S. Constitu
tion bars Congress from imposing a
retroactive demand on a state’s treas
ury, and said the lawyers’ fees could
amount to over $300,000., In re
sponse, Turner said the state had
paid — without protest — $181,000
to the Houston law firm of former
Gov. John Connally in a prison rights
case where the “great bulk of ser
vices were rendered prior to the
1976 act.”
