Question: Should We Have Settled With Paradis?

Issue: Former inmate to receive $900,000: Donald Paradis spent two decades in prison for 1981 death of Kimberly Palmer/Marc Stewart, Coeur d’Alene Press

Lynnette McHenry, ICRMP claims manager: “It’s the nightmare claim. Even if a jury awarded Mr. Paradis only $1, the 1983 civil rights laws means the attorney fees would have to be covered and that would have been at least $5 million.”

DFO: Looks like the county insurance company is now in charge of meting out justice, and this former Death Row inmate is laughing all the way to the bank.

Question: Should the county have reached a settlement with Donald Paradis?
