The class action suit against Pedernales Electric Cooperative Inc. is over, but a fee fight rages on. On one side are two lawyers who represented class members and received a portion of $4 million in attorney fees. On the other side is an attorney who claims he didn’t get a share of those fees as promised.

It’s an unusual fee dispute that has been fought in courts in Texas’ Harris and Travis counties. The lawyer for a party who objected to the class settlement sued class counsel Bill Ikard, Ikard Wynne, Baker & McKenzie and Baker & McKenzie principal Kerry Blair in Houston, but class counsel say the dispute belongs in Austin. On Thursday, a court in Austin will decide which court will hear the dispute.
