On appeal, the court agreed with the County’s assertion that Corey had no cause of action for her negligence claim. Even so, that ruling had no affect on the verdict or the award she received at trial. Furthermore, the appellate court upheld the district court ruling denying Corey attorney fees for the trial due to the untimeliness of her filing. She was, however, granted attorney fees for her appeal. See: Corey v. Pierce County, et al., Wash. App., Div. I, #62505-5-I; 62801-1- I.
