YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima and Yakima County will pay $22,000 in legal fees as part of a lawsuit involving the airport.

M.A. West Rockies sued for being wrongfully evicted from the airport in 2010 over claims it didn't pay rent. The court sided with the company.

This payment settles that part of the case. However, trustees for M.A. West Rockies now have a $7 million claim against the city and county seeking damages for going out of business.
