3 Fired Fort Oglethorpe Employees File Suit

Thursday, May 16, 2013

Three fired Fort Oglethorpe have filed suit against the city and are seeking back pay and their jobs back.

Former Public Works Director Jeff Long and Police Chief David Ewbanks filed suit in Superior Court in Catoosa County.

Joining in the complaint was Tammy Davis, who said she was sexually harassed.

It is filed by attorneys Stuart James and McCracken Poston against the city, Mayor Lynn Long and City Council members James Silcox, Clay Kissner, Lewis Hamm and Johnny Smith.

The suit says the defendants acted in excess of their authority and should be enjoined from doing so in the future.
