Former Idaho Lawmaker to Sue Sheriff

Comstock

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Former Republican Rep. Mark Patterson of Boise has taken the initial step in filing a lawsuit against Ada County Sheriff Gary Raney after Raney stripped Patterson of his concealed weapons license last year.

The Idaho Statesman reports in a story on Monday that Patterson last month filed a tort claim, a precursor to a lawsuit against a public entity. Raney revoked Patterson’s concealed weapons permit in late October for not revealing an attempted rape conviction from 1974. However, as long as he remained a legislator, Patterson was able to continue carrying a concealed gun without a permit. But he quit the Legislature in January. Patterson declined to comment. Sheriff spokesman Patrick Orr says Raney doesn’t consider the county vulnerable to Patterson’s claim.
