When the daily paper, tv stations and any other media report this REMEMBER I had it first. I requested the tax payer dollar amounts spent in the three cases against Knox County and Former Circuit Court Clerk Cathy Shanks and obtained the information this morning.
A good and reliable source told me on February 14, 2019 that this case was ended. I tried contacting the Plantiff and he refused to talk.
In review the Plantiff was terminated from employment in April 2015 by then Knox County Circuit Court Clerk after having been employed by her since 2001. Serving as high as Chief Deputy.
The three lawsuits have been settled and Knox County Law Director Bud Armstrong has written some checks.
