Unequal pay dispute from Hamilton Co. deputies heads to State Supreme Court

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - An ongoing dispute over what some consider unequal pay in the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department is going all the way to the Tennessee's Supreme Court.

In 2010, a group of sergeants filed grievances over the range of salaries.

They said they all deserved the same pay for equal work.

Tuesday, a spokesperson for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office confirmed the State Supreme Court has agreed to hear the lawsuit.

Justices could hear arguments on the lawsuit as early as January 2013.
