Civilians Lose Accountability with Victory for RPD in Police Inquest Lawsuit

The Renton Police Department, along with other south King County cities, recently won the police inquest lawsuit against King County, leaving behind a system that was considered heavily biased towards law enforcement. According to the Renton Reporter, the departments fought nearly every piece of the process “including: police policies and training should not be part of inquests; disciplinary history of officers should not be allowed; expert testimony should be limited; and inquests should not be presided over by administrators (retired judges)”.
