Coleman owes Franken $95,000, court says

Yet another problem for Norm Coleman in the never-ending battle for Minnesota's U.S. Senate seat. That's what you get for keeping this fight going.

The court ruled that Coleman owes Franken $95,000 in court costs. Minnesota law says the loser pays the winner's costs in an election contest, so it's all on Coleman's shoulders. Franken had requested $161,000 be paid to cover his costs.

The costs must be immediately paid to Franken, the court said, but Coleman's lawyers say they won't pay up until a decision on the Minnesota Supreme Court appeal. That means that the $95,000 owed will be even higher as it accrues interest. Another win for Franken.
