Man reaches settlement with Montrose County over First Amendment claims

Montrose Press: Montrose County will pay former employee Johnathan Goodman $89,500 after reaching a settlement with him over his 2021 First Amendment lawsuit.

Commissioners agreed to the settlement because continuing to trial on the matter would have been more expensive.

“Win or lose, this was an instance where the cost of settlement was less than the expense of going to trial,” commissioners said in a Thursday statement, after formally approving the settlement Wednesday, July 20, under their consent agenda.
