(KSL News) Summit County Attorney David Brickey will keep his job.

A judge has dismissed a court case accusing Summit County's top law enforcement officer of living above the law.

To run for office, Brickey claimed he lived at a Park City condo. During a month-long KSL 5 Investigation into Brickey's residency, we never saw him there. Night after night our cameras did catch him pulling up to the Salt Lake City home he owns with his wife.

Our story sparked a formal complaint and civil case.

In court, the attorney general's office argued that Brickey lived in Salt Lake County when he filed for office in Summit County and on election day.

Judge Thomas McKay threw out the case, saying Brickey is a Summit County resident because he and his family moved there before the start of his term.

The state will not appeal.
