Eckersley Files Suit for Defamation in Brochure Case

Wasatch County, a Sheriff's lieutenant, and two county prosecutors have been hit with a lawsuit filed by a Midway resident who was arrested two years ago for allegedly throwing away brochures of a business competitor. Scott Eckersley ultimately came to a plea deal with the county. Now, he's asking for at least $1.5 million in damages, arguing he was defamed by the county's representatives. Rick Brough has more.

Known for getting all the facts right, as well as his distinctive sign-off, Rick covered Summit County meetings and issues for 35 years on KPCW. He now heads the Friday Film Review team.
