Marion County Commission, Humphreys Lawsuit Settled After 4 Years

Posted: Updated:

A lawsuit between two Marion County commissioners and a former employee has finally been settled four years later.

Rick Humphreys filed suit against Butch Tennant and Randy Elliott in 2011 after the human resources department was closed down, accusing the commission of discrimination.

Humphreys won that lawsuit and in turn the commissioners filed a new case in 2012 to recover from injuries to the commissions reputation.

On Tuesday, the commissioners were offered an undisclosed settlement in the civil case and said they are happy with the outcome.

Commissioners said they are ready to get back to business and put the lawsuit behind them.
