ND man to receive $5,000 settlement over $46 fee

Posted: Updated:

FINGAL, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a 61-year-old North Dakota man who is suing a county sheriff over a $46 service fee should receive a settlement of $5,000.
    
Dennis Roehrich, of Fingal, says he was charged the fee for the cost of serving a man he was suing in small claims court, even though deputies could not follow through on the warrant because the man moved to a different county.
    
Roehrich filed a lawsuit against the Richland County sheriff's office seeking $750,000 for what he claimed was "abuse of power."
    
Corey Quinton, attorney for the sheriff's office says he doesn't believe Roehrich can show damages, but the $5,000 settlement would be cheaper than his fee for trying the case.
    
Says Roehrich, "It wasn't about the money. It was principle."
