I didn’t get up to Seattle today for Day 4 of Barbara Corey v. Pierce County.
However, I heard Corey’s team of lawyers called deputy prosecutor Kit Proctor to the stand as well as former Idaho attorney general Larry Echohawk.
Proctor is friends with Corey and was expected to testify about her interactions with the plaintiff in the hours and weeks after she was forced to resign – then was fired – following an unpopular personnel move in the Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
Echohawk, now a law professor in Utah, was expected to testify that Prosecutor Gerald Horne handled Corey’s departure from the office inappropriately.
I’ll try to post updates periodically. I probably won’t get back up to Seattle until Corey takes the stand.
