Montgomery County District Attorney commends attorneys who represented her in lawsuit

    Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman found herself in court recently for a lawsuit she filed against county commissioners.

    After coming out victorious, Ferman formally commended the team of attorneys who represented her.

    Richard A. Sprague, Michael D. Marino, Thomas Sprague and Thomas Groshens received commendations last week for the pro-bono work against the commissioners, whom Ferman said “enacted laws to interfere with the independent operation of her office.”

    The state Supreme Court ruled last month only the D.A. can supervise the office.

    Ferman called the lawyers’ work “exceptional and charitable.”
