The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit approved Greg Wersal's and the Republican Party of Minnesota's application for attorney fees. The total fees approved exceeded $1,300,000 and does not include fees incurred in the lower court which can be applied for later. The court's order can be found here. Wersal notes, "The unconstitutional Canon 5 policies of the Minnesota Supreme Court cost the Minnesota taxpayers dearly."
