Contra Costa Board of Supervisors Approve Out-Of-Court Settlement


Martinez, Calif. – The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors has approved an out-of-court settlement in the lawsuit brought by Mary Blumberg, Alison Chandler, Jill Henderson, Mary Knox, and Rachel Piersig against the County and its District Attorney’s Office, Knox, et al. v. County of Contra Costa, et al. 

 

The County agreed to pay the five plaintiffs a total sum of $2.2 million dollars, which includes costs and attorneys’ fees. 

 

The settlement resolves all claims and includes a dismissal of the lawsuit. The County felt this was the best approach to allow the District Attorney’s Office to move forward.
