The Clark County Prosecutor’s Office has settled a grievance by the Clark County Prosecutors Guild that challenged the demotion and termination of former Deputy Prosecutor Alan Harvey.Harvey, former president of the guild, was fired in May for insubordination, according to Prosecutor Tony Golik. In December 2013, Harvey defied orders from his managers when he tried for a second time to disqualify a defense attorney representing convicted child rapist Steven Dillon, according to his termination letter.In the settlement, the prosecutor’s office agreed to pay Harvey $16,690 in accrued sick leave, which he didn’t receive when he was fired. The sum was calculated through a complicated formula contained in the deputy prosecutors’ collective bargaining agreement. In exchange, the guild acknowledged that Harvey is not eligible for reinstatement or re-employment with the county, according to the settlement obtained by The Columbian.Neither party admits wrongdoing by entering into the settlement, according to the document.“Instead, it is offered and accepted as an amicable resolution of the matters. …” the document states.Since his departure from the prosecutor’s office, Harvey has joined Vancouver-based Northwest Legal Advocates, a firm which also includes former deputy prosecutors Jim David and Mike Dodds. The firm specializes in representing victims, especially those affected by child or elder abuse, according to its website.Harvey first filed a motion to disqualify Vancouver defense attorney Jeff Sowder from the Dillon case on Oct. 4, 2011, when he accused Sowder of helping Dillon commit perjury during testimony the previous month.
