According to the Associated Press, Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty has asked the State Department of Justice to defend him in a lawsuit by three former deputy district attorneys he fired when he took office in January. Tuesday we talked with Department of Justice spokesperson Tony Green. He confirmed that defending state officials and agencies is one of their roles, but they usually don't comment on any of these cases. Three former prosecutors are alleging wrongful discharge, discrimination and unfair labor practices. The case is ongoing and Flaherty's Office has not yet returned our calls to respond to the allegations.
