My 501 3c organization has a pro bono atty( Ward Meade NIA vs. Southside Christian Palace Los Angeles, Ca, filed in Shawnee County Ks; involving the National Historic Landmark Sumner School (Brown vs. Topeka Board of Edu. USC 1954). Should we expect our pro bono atty (Mr. Paul Post) to pay the the costs associated with the case as well as do the legal work? Did he sign on to pay for what is(to date) looking like a couple of thousand dollars in actual expenses?
I bet you still have a representation agreeement... what does it say? Why not ask your attorney? .....most of the time you’ll be responsible for fttf

Review your engagement letter. It probably provides that your organization should be responsible for these fees. Be thankful that Mr. Post, a very good lawyer, is willing to donate his services.
