A December 2007 storm in Western Washington caused a landslide which demolished a local restaurant, the award-winning Ranch House BBQ. The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) allowed massive clear cutting, causing the landslide that destroyed Ranch House. Darrell Cochran is a Tacoma attorney that handles cases involving damage from flooding, landslides and clear cutting. The Ranch House BBQ case resembles the catastrophic disaster that occurred in March 2014 in the small town of Oso, WA, in Snohomish County, but on a much more isolated scale. There was no loss of life in the Ranch House BBQ case, unlike in Oso.
