Ex-Deputy Prosecutor Sues County

Kootenai County is accused of breaching terms of two confidential settlement agreements involving a former deputy prosecutor. Kenneth D. Stone and his wife filed a tort and breach of contract claim Thursday accusing the Board of County Commissioners of disclosing information they agreed to keep confidential. Stone is seeking more than $10,000 in attorney fees and damages exceeding $25,000. Stone was fired from the Kootenai County Prosecutor's Office in March 2011 and filed a federal lawsuit against the county for wrongful termination and age discrimination. The county released a press release in December stating Stone had been paid a confidential amount and was being rehired until he was eligible for a lifetime, taxpayer-funded pension/Taryn Thompson, Coeur d'Alene Press.
