A former Northampton County Councilman is paying big bucks after losing an appeal.

Ron Angle says he has lost his appeal in a recent land dispute.

Back in August of last year Palmer Cotturo accused Angle of blocking a land development project in Upper Mount Bethel township.

A judge ruled in favor of Cotturo but denied his request to add interest on the final settlement.

Angle says he just wrote a check to Cotturo to the tune of $1.27 million.
