William Olson was hired as an expert in a politically popular lawsuit brought by state Attorney General Gary King against a proposed horse-slaughter plant near Roswell.
Olson received more than $13,375 in public money for helping prepare King’s assistant attorneys general for the case, and for testifying against the slaughterhouse. Olson’s rate of pay was $80 an hour, according to payment records we obtained this week.
