Case #64847
Respondent name: Innocence Project Northwest
Complainant name: PDC Staff

On February 13, 2020, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) notified Innocence Project Northwest of an alleged violation of RCW 42.17A.630 for failure to timely file the annual Lobbyist Employer’s Expense report (L-3 report) disclosing lobbying activities for calendar year 2018.

Innocence Project Northwest completed a Statement of Understanding (SOU) and paid a $100 civil penalty in accordance with WAC 390-37-143 (Brief Enforcement Penalty Schedule), acknowledging violations of RCW 42.17A.630 for failure to timely file the annual L-3 report no later than February 28, 2019. The L-3 report was received February 18, 2020, 355 days beyond the statutory deadline. The $100 penalty assessed resolves the allegations.

Based on this information, the PDC finds that no further action is warranted and has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1)(a). The PDC will not conduct a more formal investigation into these allegations or take further enforcement action in this matter.  

Disposition: Resolved through Statement of Understanding (Resolved 03/10/2020)
