The legal standoff in between Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy and Prosecutor Mark Lindquist reached brand-new levels of stress Friday, setting the phase for a potentially memorable confrontation in court Dec. 18.

The newest advancement is a shocker: a letter from County Council Chairman Dan Cockroach that basically seeks to fire Jessie Harris and Hunter Abell, outside lawyers McCarthy has actually kept to represent the county’s interests.

“You are not counsel for Pierce County and Pierce County is not looking for to have you or your company selected as its counsel,” Roach’s letter states, in part. “The Pierce County Council manages litigation.”

Roach’s letter includes that the county will not pay McCarthy’s lawyers for their legal services.
