Issaquah Law Group - Personal Injury Litigation Attorneys

TRUST: Personal injuries are personal. Which is why the attorneys at ILG treat every client and every case differently. Because they are different, and extremely personal. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built on trust. Trust that you will be heard. Trust that you will be protected. Trust that every effort will be made to see justice done in your case. The singular goal of every ILG attorney is to earn and preserve that trust.

EXPERIENCE: ILG attorneys have a broad base of litigation experience to draw on in all Federal and State courts from on-the-ground investigations to Supreme Court appeals and we bring this experience to bear on behalf of our clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of motor vehicle accidents, bus versus pedestrian accidents, defective and dangerous products, medical malpractice, slip/trip and fall accidents, and catastrophic losses due to fire.

WA Legal Roundup: Division II

Building Industry Assoc. Of WA v. Pat McCarthy et al

BIAW appeals the summary judgment dismissal of its case against Pat McCarthy- Pierce County Auditor and Pierce County.  The County cross-appeals alleging that the trial court erred when it denied its cross claim for sanctions against BIAW and denied is motion to seal a inadvertently disclosed privileged email communication. 

BIAW made a public disclosure of records request to the Auditor and after many arguments stated they had evidence not all the documents were handed over based upon a couple of emails that had been sent globally but later deleted by the County due to protocol.  Eventually, BIAW filed suit for violations of the public disclosure act.  The County cross-appealed for sanctions.  The trial court dismissed the case and felt there was not any evidence the County had violated the act and ruled that the suit was not frivolous and denied motions for sanctions.

The only evidence presented at summary judgment was the declarations signed by the Auditor and the County that they provided all records requested.  The appeals court affirms the trial court’s ruling.

In regards to the County’s cross appeal for sanctions the appeals court also affirms the trial court’s ruling.  The appeals court found that the suit was not frivolous as was evidenced by the trial court’s request for additional briefing when BIAW made its motion for reconsideration.
