In the story "The $1 Million Settlement" in the March 28, 2019, edition of the North Coast Journal, County Counsel Jeffrey Blanck told the Journal the $1 million payment to end a civil rights lawsuit was covered by the county's insurance risk pool. It has since come to the Journal's attention that the county paid $100,000 for its "self-insured retention" portion of the amount, while the remaining $900,000 was paid by the risk pool.
