Court throws out county suit against Cunan
A court has thrown out Plumas County’s lawsuit against former District Attorney Jeff Cunan. Visiting Judge of the Superior Court Ersel Edwards ruled, among other things, that the county did not provide sufficient facts to establish personal liability on Cunan’s part.
Edwards said the court "does not see any reasonable possibility that County could amend its complaint … to cure the identified defects.”
The county had alleged Cunan did not follow proper procedure with funds from the bad check diversion program and sought repayment of around $15,000.
