Giorgio Mammoliti is making news this morning. The Ward 7 York-West city councillor wants taxpayers to cover more than $48,000 in legal bills which he’s accumulated in his fight against conflict of interest charges.

Mammoliti was docked three months’ pay by his fellow councillors earlier this year, after a scathing report from Toronto’s integrity commissioner found that a $500 a plate event held in 2013 in his honour broke city rules. Council also voted to bring in lawyers to investigate whether to refer the issue to police.

Mammoliti is continuing to fight through the courts to have the ruling quashed.  According to a staff report to be considered by city council on Thursday, he’s filed three sets of legal bills to the city seeking reimbursement for the costs. Under city policy, councillors are automatically eligible to have their legal fees in Code of Conduct cases reimbursed to a limit of $20,000.
