Lawyers for former Westfield State University President Evan Dobelle have billed the school $100,000 in legal costs.
Hartford lawyer Ross Garber represented Dobelle before his retirement. Garber charged the university for nearly 170 hours of work between July 15 and Aug. 26.
Dobelle retired Nov. 8 after a legal battle over what some considered extravagant spending on travel and other perks.
The trustees have asked the state attorney general's office if they have to pay the bill.
