Judge Tosses Lawsuit by Former Spokesman for Mayor Adams

It appears Mayor Sam Adams will avoid being questioned under oath about his relationship with Beau Breedlove—at least in the immediate future.

Multnomah County Judge Pro Tem Thomas Crist today tossed out a lawsuit against the City of Portland brought by a former spokesman for Adams.

Crist wrote that the city was correct in arguing that Wade Nkrumah had no grounds to sue the city for wrongful discharge, defamation and unpaid wages.

"It ain't over. That's what the appellate courts are good for," Nkrumah's lawyer, Michael Hanlon, tells WW. "I'm going to recommend that we appeal."
