BRADENTON, Fla. — Attorney Calvin Grigsby is protesting Jefferson County, Ala.'s proposal to reject a $1.63 billion claim that he submitted on behalf of local elected officials and others in the county's bankruptcy case.

The claim was filed on behalf of the same group of elected officials and residents who are named in an "adversarial proceeding" filed by Grigsby contending that the county's issuance of 2002C, 2003B and 2003C sewer system warrants, and the use of swaps, was illegal. Warrants are similar to bonds.
