[ARCHIVED] $5 Million Lawsuit Against County Dismissed

“We will always fight to protect children, fight to make our community safer, and fight for what’s right,” said Prosecutor Mark Lindquist. “As President Lincoln said, truth is the best vindication.”

The Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office secured a major victory today when a $5 million lawsuit claiming false arrest and malicious prosecution was dismissed.

“Prosecutors charged Lynn Dalsing because evidence showed she facilitated crimes against children,” said Richard Jolley, an attorney representing the county. “Despite obstacles, our clients stuck to their guns because they knew they acted appropriately and ethically. This is a great victory for the Prosecutor’s Office, the Sheriff’s Department and the people of Pierce County.”

Dalsing has now dismissed all her claims, in both state and federal court, rather than proceed to trial.
