Mountain Express: Sun Valley Councilman Wants Opponent to Undergo Mental Exam

Posted By on Sun, Jun 2, 2013 at 1:00 PM

A Sun Valley city councilman says the attorney of his detractor needs to have his head examined.

The Idaho Mountain Express reports that Sun Valley Councilman Nils Ribi has gone as far as to file a motion in 5th District Court requesting that Jim Donoval "submit to a mental and physical examination." Donoval represents former Sun Valley City Administrator Sharon Hammer (Donoval's wife).

Hammer alleged in July 2012 that Ribi "engaged in harassing and abusive conduct" toward the former city administrator. Hammer filed a similar suit in November 2011.

Hammer and Ribi have filed multiple lawsuits and countersuits against one another. Both parties have alleged that they have suffered emotional distress from one another.

The Mountain Express reports that Ribi has filed yet another claim, alleging that "Donoval has put his physical and mental condition in controversy. But on May 16 Donoval filed a counter-motion for a protective order against such an exam, contending that an exam is "wholly unnecessary."

Both sides return to court on Tuesday July 2.
