Nice comment, Dr. Z.

the buck stops with the subdivider of the property and county commissioners that allowed the plat to be developed. the hazard was known. maybe not the extent, but it was mapped.

i hope the Thomas Satterlee family (the sovereign-citizen freedom county yahoo who got buried in the landslide with his wife) aren't part of this suit. that would be the height of irony.

This particular buck stops with Snohomish County and it will bankrupt the County.

And if the county hadn't allowed them to build on that property, they would have sued the county for that, too.

@5 Absolutely correct. No one should have been living out there in the first place. Plenty of blame to go around for that, but the homeowners aren't immune to criticism here.

You know they are.
