The state’s legal tab is nearing a half-million dollars to defend four former high-level Public Safety Personnel Retirement System employees who alleged wrongdoing over real estate investments and then were sued by Scottsdale-based Desert Troon, which managed those properties.

The cost to taxpayers is expected to rise, as the 3-year-old case has no trial date set and Troon has declined to negotiate on settlement offers from the state’s risk-management division, according to an attorney representing one of the ex-employees.

The risk-management division is the agency responsible for paying the PSPRS legal bills from state funds.
