State Patrol settles with Spokane firefighter for $2.4M
An investigation discovered too late that Todd Chism was a victim of identity theft.
In a statement from the patrol Friday, Risk Manager Donald Sorenson apologized for oversights in the investigation and for damage to Chism's reputation and distress to his family.
The Spokesman-Review reported that Chism still has a separate $10 million lawsuit pending against the Washington State Patrol over an April 2010 altercation with troopers near his home at Nine Mile Falls.
