Grand Marais, MN ( - Embattled Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell is threatening to sue the county over the court house shooting in December 2011. The Cook County Board of Commissioners held a closed door meeting yesterday to discuss the threatened litigation. The move was recommended by the attorney for the board, according to a post on the internet blog of Commissioner Sue Hakes. In the letter, Dyan Ebert writes it was necessary to hold a meeting in a private, confidential setting to discuss strategy and possible reconciliation or settlement options. Scannell was one of several shot by Daniel Schlienz in the Grand Marais Courthouse Shooting. Kevin Jacobsen Bio - Facebook - Twitter - E-Mail
