Spokane Mayor David Condon has fired City Attorney Howard Delaney. The city's legal department has been scrutinized over its handling of several recent cases. Most recently, the City Council rejected a proposed settlement for fired police Sgt. Brad Thoma, who was fired in 2009 after an off-duty drunken driving and hit-run incident. City administrators agreed to rehire Thoma and give him $275,000 in back pay but the council rejected the deal.
