Eric Johnston asked for $300,000 but settled for $20,000.
Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley previously said he wouldn’t agree to any kind of settlement because he felt the claim was baseless. He now says he relented because the attorneys advised him that going to trial would be much more expensive than the relatively small settlement.
