Lawsuit Update

The lawsuit brought against the tax payers of Loudon County by Court Clerk, Lisa Niles, continues to move forward. I understand it's set to go to trial the early part of December.

Niles has sued the county for hundreds of thousands of dollars claiming she doesn't have enough help to do her job and that her employees are under paid.

Legal fees alone are estimated by some to be tens of thousands of dollars and if Ms. Niles wins her suit, the commission will be force by such a court decision to raise property taxes to pay her demands.

I suspect the voters will remember what Ms. Niles has done to them come the next election.
