Summit Creek flows swift and clear through a ponderosa pine forest on this early June morning near Logan Valley, about 25 miles south of Prairie City.

Baker City’s insurance company will pay former local journalist Brian Addison $155,000 to settle a lawsuit he filed against the city and its former police chief in 2015.

The settlement was finalized Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Pendleton. The lawsuit, which had been scheduled to go to trial in August, was dismissed with prejudice, which means the matter cannot be brought before the court again.

The city and Addison will be responsible for their own costs and attorney fees, the stipulated agreement states.

In signing the agreement, City Manager Fred Warner Jr., former police chief Wyn Lohner and Addison agreed to release all parties from any further liability in the matter.
