Former city attorney accuses Straub report author of libel in latest statement

The attorney representing Nancy Isserlis panned a letter sent this week enforcing the finding she was responsible for the delay of potentially damaging public records until after Mayor David Condon’s re-election. John Spencer Stewart for the second time demanded a retraction, and this time accused Cappel of libel in her report.

Condon’s pick for city attorney drops out; former attorney blasts Straub report

Laura McAloon cites a “toxic” relationship with City Council President Ben Stuckart as her reason for dropping out of contention for the city attorney’s office. Stuckart says she didn’t have the votes for confirmation. Nancy Isserlis, through an attorney, demanded a public apology following the report that cast a shadow on McAloon’s nomination.

Witness lists provide look into Straub investigation

Two witness lists for the ongoing Spokane City Hall investigation into the firing of former police Chief Frank Straub have shed some light into the inquiry, but the inner workings remain largely concealed from public view. The lists, which were part of a public records release sought by The Spokesman-Review, contain a total of 42 names of city employees. Straub and Monique Cotton, the police spokeswoman who made the accusation of sexual harassment against Straub that led to the continuing controversy, are absent from the list.
