There is little to add to these reports, except to clarify that, with interest, the damages have now risen to £30,000. On top of that are some £220,000 in costs awarded against her, and there is as yet no indication as to how the council and its insurers will seek to recover the money.
The damages were awarded in respect of Mr James's counterclaim, which in the view of the Wales Audit Office was unlawfully funded by the Council. While the council's officers were adamant in their report last month that the indemnity was lawful, councillors opted for a fudge to "note" the officers' views and sit on the fence.
As things stand, one of the highest paid officials in Wales stands to scoop winnings of £30,000 from an unlawfully funded litigation, quite possibly making a family homeless into the bargain.
The only crumb of comfort that can be drawn from this is that contrary to Mr James's assertions that he had blazed a trail which other councils would follow, no Welsh council in its right mind is likely to go down that path ever again.
Meanwhile, the Winter Palace in Haverfordwest looks set to come under siege as three of the largest unions have joined forces to call for the Chief Executive, Bryn Parry-Jones, to step down while the latest round of police investigations into the pension payments is underway. Unison is going a step further and balloting its members in a vote of no confidence, and the unions have also called on the public to join them in a protest outside County Hall.
It's worth recalling that the trouble stems from the tax dodging pension scheme, and that the Labour Party is playing a leading role in trying to call the council chief executive to account.
Next door in Carmarthenshire where the Chief Executive, Mark James, was found to have benefited from not one but two unlawful schemes, Labour has adopted the opposite policy and has defended Mr James for all its worth.
If that was not bad enough, Jacob Williams has published a copy of an explosive letter written by the former lay chairman of Pembrokeshire's Audit Committee explaining the reasons for his resignation. The account given of the chief executive's conduct is extraordinary.
The Audit Committee row relates to suspected fraud in the administration of building improvement grants, and is the subject of a separate and extremely slow-moving police investigation.
