County Pays $315K To Fired Attorney

Kootenai County's insurance company paid $315,000 to a deputy prosecutor who was fired and then rehired after suing the county for wrongful termination. The Idaho Counties Risk Management Plan, or ICRMP, paid the settlement to Kenneth Stone in November 2013. A month later, county commissioners created a new, temporary full-time position for Stone in the prosecutor's office "for 11 pay periods." Stone could not be reached for comment Tuesday, but his wife, attorney Saviraj Grewal, said neither she nor her husband would comment. "The ICRMP settlement was confidential," Grewal said. The settlement amount was released after The Press submitted a records request to ICRMP. Previously, the county refused to divulge the settlement amount/Taryn Thompson, Coeur d'Alene Press.
