KNOX — La Porte County Prosecutor John Lake and his wife and chief of staff, Mary Lake, have filed a civil tort claim against former Michigan City mayor Ron Meer and the city of Michigan City.

In the claim filed by local attorney Guy DiMartino in Starke County Circuit Court on Tuesday, the Lakes say they are seeking “compensatory damages, punitive damages, and all other just and proper relief” stemming from Meer having accused them of arresting his stepson out of political retaliation just weeks prior to the 2019 general election – an allegation the Lakes say is false.
