Russell, a friend of Bivens, is responsible in part for the sweetheart deal Bivens got to leave Washougal.
You remember, right? $45,000 to leave a job he never should have got in the first place? Since the city council, including Russell, hired Bivens KNOWING he had been suspended by the Bar for 18 months as a result of "charging unreasonable fees, conflicts of interest, failure to preserve the identity of clients’ property and dishonest conduct."
Now, Bivens seems to have bigger fish to fry... though the $100,000 seems to be remaining invisible.
Washougal City Government. You get something out of it whether you go there or not.
