YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. -- Yakima County is responding to a $7 million damage claim filed against it and the city of Yakima yesterday.

KIMA was the first to report the claim connected to a company improperly evicted from the Yakima Air Terminal in 2010.

County Commissioner Kevin Bouchey says the legal department will review the claim's merits and the county's insurance coverage.

On top of that, a creditor of the evicted tenant has filed a lawsuit against the city and county for almost $3.5 million.
