Humboldt County's most infamous slumlords have been ordered to pay the City of Eureka more than $26,000 in attorneys' fees. Floyd and Betty Squires unsuccessfully sued the City last year, arguing that they had been unfairly singled out for renting substandard hovels. 

If you're unfamiliar with the Squireses track record, some highlights lowlights can be found here, here and here.

Here's the press release from the City of Eureka:

The Humboldt County Superior Court has granted the City of Eureka's motion for Attorneys' Fees against Floyd and Betty Squires. The City was awarded the entire amount requested of $26,521.26. The City requested reimbursement of the fees it had incurred when it was forced to defend a lawsuit filed by the Squires against the City claiming that the City had no basis to enforce code violations for substandard housing at numerous properties owned by the Squires.

The City continues to move forward in its lawsuit against the Squires for substandard housing at numerous properties within the City of Eureka.
