County may appeal judgement

July 24th, 2014 by Ken

Thurston County Commissioners are seriously considering an appeal of a $12 million dollar judgement against them from a losing court battle with the Port of Tacoma.

Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney Jon Tunheim said it was “highly likely” the county would appeal.   He said that his office was talking with the commissioners and with the insurance carrier’s attorney and would make a decision shortly.

Tunheim made those remarks on “Coffee With Ken” which will air Tuesday on KGY Radio 95.3 FM.

While Tunheim was not in office in 2010, when the county made the decision to delay Maytown Sand and Gravel’s mining permit, there are unconfirmed reports that previous prosecuting attorney Ed Holm had warned the commissioners that they might be in violation of the law.
