After he was sued earlier this year by a Trutanich supporter  accusing him of violating city campaign laws,  Feuer formed a legal defense fund. A separate report filed Thursday showed the fund has raised $38,500, paid $35,000 in legal fees and owes $49,119 to the firm handling Feuer’s defense, Manatt Phelps & Phillips. Feuer has denied any wrongdoing.
