Appeals court rules in favor of Hamilton County sergeants

HAMILTON COUNTY, TN. (WRCB) -- Channel 3 is learning more about a lawsuit against the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

An Appeals Court has now sided with the sergeants regarding equal pay.

Last year, six sergeants filed a grievance with the Civil Service Board, complaining of unequal pay.

The board sided with the sergeants and Sheriff Hammond appealed.

The Appeals Court now says the board didn't have authority to order Hammond to equalize pay.

The court sent the case back to the board with instructions on how to equalize pay.
