Stark County commissioners to pay $40K to settle lawsuit by cleared guidance counselor—Canton Repository
“Peter Pattakos, Jones-Harrington’s attorney, said the settlement amount was ‘reasonable,’ and his client was not seeking an excessive amount.
“‘She’s very glad that the county was willing to pay a substantial sum to recognize the wrong that was done with the prosecution. And she’s glad to put this issue in the past. … We’re grateful that Dawn’s name has been cleared. And the county paying this settlement amount is confirmation of that.’
“Pattakos said there were no other terms of the settlement other than the $40,000.”
