Baker City Councilor Adam Nilsson has served notice to city and county officials that he plans to file lawsuits against Baker County and the Baker City Police Department and employees of both entities.

The lawsuit is tied to an incident on Aug. 1, 2017, when Nilsson and a friend made a trip to an abandoned cement plant along Interstate 84 near Huntington.

Nilsson, 46, of 307 Hillcrest Drive, submitted letters by registered mail and in person earlier this week that state his intent to sue Baker County and Sheriff’s Department employees Lt. Jef Van Arsdall and deputy Gabe Maldonado, and the Baker City Police Department.

Nilsson said he sent the letters in order to meet the 180-day time line for tort claim notices — a step required for people who plan to file lawsuits against public bodies or their employees.
