Potter County Civil Lawsuit Update

Potter County Attorney Scott Brumley is now representing the county in a civil lawsuit. An Austin law firm is suing Potter County for $12,000 of unpaid fees from a previous suit.

It all stems from when Austin attorneys Allison, Bass & Associates, represented the county in an investigation into the it's Road and Bridge Department last year.

Employees were accused of misusing public equipment on private land, but the case never made it past a grand jury. County Auditor Kerry Hood is also named in the lawsuit.
