Did you know that King County has placed an incredible number of attorneys and law firms on retainer to prevent them from representing citizens in litigation against the county? While on retainer they can't represent anyone suing the county without entering into a conflict of interest.
Got this from an elected county official today. "Most all the attorney firms in the county are on some kind of retainer from the county. It is most amazing indeed."
Don't know what that's costing us here in King County, but I've just submitted a PDA request to find out. Certainly doesn't sound like a very worthwhile use of taxpayer dollars to me, does it?
Don't even have to ask what they're afraid of, because we all know.
