Judge recommends dismissing complaints filed against Murray Co.

Posted: Updated:

CHATSWORTH, MURRAY COUNTY (WRCB)-- A federal judge recommends dropping some of the complaints filed against Murray County in a hearing for a sexual harassment case.

Days before the county's sole commissioner, David Ridley, unexpectedly resigned, a female employee under his supervision filed a sexual harassment complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Ridley resigned March 28th, citing a need to concentrate on his family and business operations at a poultry farm he owns.

Soon after, Ridley's accuser filed suit against him and the county.

A federal judge has recommended dismissing five of the six charges against the county.

The decision has no affect on the case against David Ridley.

Greg Hogan, a former mayor of Eton, was elected to serve as sole commissioner in July.
