A private attorney for San Bernardino County District Attorney Mike Ramos was hired by the county Tuesday to represent him in a sexual harassment lawsuit by a former employee.
The Board of Supervisors approved a contract with the Riverside firm of Gresham Savage Nolan & Tilden to have one of its attorneys, Richard Marca, handle Ramos’ defense. According to the contract, Marca will bill the county $275 an hour for his services but no total budget is listed.
