The trial court granted the City's motion for summary judgment. Mr. Harberd does not renew his injunctive relief arguments here, thus they are abandoned. State v.

    Litigation
    Outcome:
    (not available)
    Description:
    Don and Tom Tucker appeal the trial court's summary dismissal of their tort action against Kittitas County and the denial of their motion for mandamus.

We agree that the Tuckers' failure to file a claim with the County does not bar the action and, therefore, reverse the dismissal of the tort action. We affirm the ruling on mandamus and remand the order for terms.
