Judge rules county must pay $35K for Delgaudio legal fees

The roughly $35,000, Sheridan said, was a "modest" and "reasonable" request from King."

Nationally Renowed Journalist, Columnist and Author Condemns "slanted news coverage" of frivilous and harmful attacks on Delgaudio

Breaking: At 11:40 AM Sunday, July 27, 2014, George Archibald, released a statement condemning the harmful and "unprofessional" reporting of a news organization against Eugene Delgaudio.

Archibald is a career senior investigative reporter, and a four-time Pulitzer Prize nominee.


"Why can't we get a straight news story from this (Leesburg Today) site about the court victory of Delegate Delgaudio's attorney?

This highly editorialized lead and report is disgraceful, with no byline so we know its author. Leesburg Today has slanted its coverage on the Delgaudio story and pushed it in a negative way all along.

This is very harmful to public trust, and as a career news professional who got his start at LCHS under Loudoun Raider faculty advisor Helen Niman in 1960-62, I deplore this biased tainted reporting. Wish we still had The Loudoun Times-Mirror whose honesty was a valued tradition." unquote
