Hall's legal fees $127K, and possibly rising

The latest figures released from Atlanta Public Schools show the district has been billed $127,386 by former Superintendent Beverly Hall for legal fees associated with the state 2009 testing investigation.

A spokesman said the district will likely be on the hook for legal expenses incurred by Hall for matters relating to her role as Atlanta superintendent.

Investigators concluded Hall knew or should have known that rising test scores during her tenure resulted from academic fraud. Hall claims she did not.
