Miles & Stockbridge gets paid.
The documents show the firm received four payments in the past year:
$15,000 in June;
$20,457.86 in July;
$5,429.80 in October;
and $667.61 this month.
Currie's attorney, Dale P. Kelberman, is a partner with Miles & Stockbridge.
The feds have been examining whether the Shoppers Food and Pharmacy grocery store chain hired Currie to garner favorable legislation and decisions by state agencies. The grocery chain paid Currie more than $200,000 over a five-year period, according to a search warrant affidavit.
The investigation came to light when the FBI raided the senator's home in May 2008. Currie, chairman of the Budget and Taxation Committee, never disclosed his employment by Shoppers on General Assembly ethics forms.
The senator has not been charged with any wrongdoing and it is unclear from the filing what he hired Miles & Stockbridge to handle. A notation next to each payment says "legal fees."
Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has in the past ruled out using the campaign money to pay for criminal defense unless the case involves campaign finance violations.
Kelberman also represented Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon who pleaded guilty to a theft and perjury charge earlier this month.
