April 20, 2022: A petition for a protective order filed by Stephanie Rudat in King County District Court against Sammamish Comment editor Miki Mullor was dismissed today.
Rudat, the daughter of former Sammamish City Manager Dave Rudat, filed the petition last month. She claimed harassment and that she feared for the safety of herself and her children. Mullor denied the charges. The judge, in a short hearing, ruled that Rudat’s claims were not supported by law. Claims of libel and slander must be pursued in a lawsuit in a different venue.
The judge denied Mullor’s request for attorney’s fees.
