Mims asks for more money for legal battle

FRESNO, Calif. Sheriff Mims won a partial victory this month when a judge ruled that she could lay off correctional officers over the objection of county supervisors. But the judge also ruled against her on other parts of the lawsuit.

Supervisors will vote in closed session tomorrow to decide whether to appeal the judge's ruling.

Sheriff Mims hasn't publicly said whether she will appeal, but her original budget for attorney's fees was $100,000 dollars and she's asking to raise that to $300,000.
