CLINTON—The petitioners in the ouster suit against Anderson County Law Director Jay Yeager will have a question-and-answer session with their attorney Gregory Brown in Clinton on Tuesday.
The session will be held at the Clinton Community Center at 6 p.m. Tuesday, October 21, a press release said. The session will be open to the public and to the media.
A group of 22 Anderson County citizens have appealed a special judge’s decision to dismiss their ouster lawsuit against Yeager. Petitioners have asked their attorney to answer questions regarding the case and the appeal, the release said.
“We want to be as transparent and informative as possible,” said Lynn Byrge, one of the petitioners. “There also seems to be confusion about the legal questions, among other things, and we want a good, healthy question-and-answer session. We hope that elected officials and county commissioners will also attend to learn more about this citizen case.”
The citizen group was ordered to pay the costs of the case, and they have already paid the clerk those costs that amount to $406.50.
