Judge boosts fines against Eyman in campaign-finance lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - A Thurston County judge has doubled the daily contempt-of-court fines against Tim Eyman and his associates in the state's lawsuit against the anti-tax initiative promoter.

The Seattle Times reports Friday's order by Superior Court Judge James Dixon's order boosts the fines to a combined $1,000 per day. Eyman and Citizen Solutions have now accumulated over $101,000 in fines, with another nearly $36,000 for related court costs and fees.

Dixon found them in contempt in February for not producing all the financial documents sought by the state in a $2.1 million lawsuit alleging politically corrupt acts.

In a fundraising letter he sent earlier this month, Eyman said that over a decade of his tax returns, phone records and bank statements have been reviewed.

Mark Lamb, attorney for Citizen Solutions officer William Agazarm, said Monday his client did nothing wrong.
