JUNEAU, Alaska — A state court judge has ordered the Alaska Redistricting Board to pay more than $310,000 in attorneys' fees and costs to the Fairbanks-area plaintiffs.

Attorneys for George Riley and Ronald Dearborn had requested nearly $440,000, including about $120,000 in appellate fees. But Superior Court Judge Michael McConahy said he was unaware of any authority he had to award fees for work done in a different court.

McConahy subtracted out other requested costs, as well.

He ordered the board pay about $296,000 in attorneys' fees and nearly $17,000 in costs.
