Credit to Stephens in Zehm case

I applaud Scott Stephens (“Mistakes made,” April 13) for what he has done concerning the Otto Zehm case. The next step is to make sure the people that caused these mistakes are held accountable. I believe Spokane should pursue legal action against Rocky Treppiedi for breach of contract and ineffectual counsel.

Treppiedi is not the only one. Otto Zehm’s death, and the cover-up that followed, is going to cost this great city millions of dollars. The list of the other people responsible for this cost is long but distinguished.

I guess since former Mayor Mary Verner didn’t get her sour grapes pay we might let her off the hook. As for the rest, I say make them all pay.

Michael Smith
