For those living in Tacoma or near vicinity, you have likely heard about the ongoing issues with the Pierce County Assessor - Dale Washam (current assessor) - Mark Lindquist (current prosecutor) - battle. If not, just go the News Tribune and they can probably catch you up to speed.
However, political and off topic banter aside, the Washington Supreme Court did recently affirm a trial court's opinion denying the recall lawsuit against Mark Lindquist. The opinion can be found here.
The recall was at the request of current assessor's chief deputy and alleged that Mr. Lindquist failed to fulfill his duties as prosecutor by not going after the previous assessor (Ken Madsen) - because the previous assessor was not performing on-site inspections for property tax assessments. Well the trial court ruled the lawsuit and recall were frivolous and also issued an award of $50,000 in attorney's fees in favor of Mr. Lindquist. The WA Supreme Court upheld the trial court's ruling - including the amount of attorney's fees.
