Plain Talk: Lawmaker Wants a Pay Day for Suing the State

State Rep. Marvin Nelson (D-Rolla) (Jesse Trelstad/Grand Forks Herald)

On this episode of Plain Talk, state Rep. Marvin Nelson (D-Rolla) wants the courts to award him a six figure payout after he and four other plaintiffs sued the state to deny retroactive payments to royalty owners. His lawyers also want $62 million in fees.

Meanwhile the royalty owners, who were denied payments for mineral rights they own under Lake Sakakawea, are still waiting for their pay day.

Also, Dawson Schefter from the North Dakota Republican Party explains why my recent criticisms of the party are in accurate.
