Team O’Kasey Prevails On Another Motion For Summary Judgment
Karen O’Kasey and Josh Sherman prevailed on summary judgment for the City of North Bend on a complex class action challenge to the city’s Public Safety Fee. The plaintiffs sought an injunction prohibiting the city from collecting the fee on the basis that it was being collected in violation of the city’s charter. After defeating class certification, defendants successfully argued that the fee was valid under the city charter. Moving forward, the City of North Bend can continue to collect the Public Safety Fee to fund its police department.
