Hearing on Terry Barton's Restitution

The U.S. attorney's office appealed a ruling in the Terry Barton case Tuesday.

Attorneys believe the judge is legally required to make Barton pay $14.7 million in restitution.

He ruled against it in June.

Barton's attorney argued the decision is within the judge's discretion.

The court of appeals is expected to make a ruling in several months.

Barton is serving a 12-year sentence for the fire.
