As I said it is public record!!!!! It was served at Mayor Palmieri's office, because he represents the county as a whole. Either the Mayor of the Finance Director can answer all your questions.

Yes, just in the know is correct. The lawsuit is against Sheriff Mccoig, for discriminating against and firing a female officer. He refused to let her come in to the SHeriffs Office to use the restroom, even for an emergency (.). After weeks of being treated different by supervisors and fellow officers, she ask Mccoig about the cold shrugs she was receiving. And all he told her is that she was terminated immediately, and she was to leave ( HIS ) property. Last time I checked that property belonged to the County. Does this answer your ????

Well the termination letters and the sexual discrimination forms filed with the EEOC are all part of the lawsuit. The Mayors office has ALL the info. I would just like to know why it has not been made public. Is the Banner riding in mccoigs pocket???

Well I made the call today, and YES there is in fact a lawsuit against Jefferson County & Mccoig. After getting the details I now believe every word that I have heard about how ruthless and controlling mccoig is. And I do wish Ms. Jones luck with her pending suit.

The same poster over and over and over. Are you the one in the lawsuit? It appears you could be the way you go on and on and on, Give it a rest already and let the court do it's job. We all know also that any person or disgruntled person or former employee or whoever can and do file lawsuits daily. Are people still innocent until proven guilty? Now get over yourself already.

It doesn't specifically say the sheriff, but you know it is. He is the supervisor of the deputies, and this story has been in the rumor mill in the court house at county meetings since shortly after he took office.

Jefferson County Post:
"Of the ten, four involve the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department. The County’s insurance carrier is defending suits filed by an inmate for alleged mistreatment and an EEOC complaint by an employee that asserts that a supervisor would not allow her to go to the restroom. The remaining two suits involving the Sheriff’s Department are regarding action that has been threatened or may be forthcoming. One involves coverage of medical bills and the other is regarding notice received by the U.S. Department of Labor and Wage Division." Jefferson County Post

From Knox News:

"Former deputy sues Jefferson County for alleged sex discrimination
Claims she was denied access to sheriff's office bathroom

A former law enforcement officer has filed a sex discrimination lawsuit against Jefferson County after she was fired from her position as a patrol deputy sheriff last year.
Sarah Grace Jones of Dandridge was terminated from her position with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office on May 25, 2011, and not given a reason for being let go, according to a seven-page lawsuit filed in Jefferson County Circuit Court.
According to the suit, Jones was hired with the Sheriff's Office in 2004 as a school resource officer then promoted in July 2009 to a patrol deputy. She claims that while working a patrol shift in December 2010, she requested to be allowed to return to the Sheriff's Office on Justice Center Drive in Dandridge to use the women's facilities.
She informed her sergeant she needed to use the locker room because she was having her menstrual cycle, the suit states.
The sergeant, the suit continues, told Jones that Sheriff G.W. "Bud" McCoig told him to tell Jones she needed to use the rest room at a local truck stop or at a local school.
Jones then asked the sergeant, "Are you telling me I can't go to the office to use the bathroom?"
The sergeant responded, "No, I am not telling you that."
The suit states Jones then used the bathroom and later received a reprimand for the incident, despite the fact that male patrol deputies were not forbidden from returning to the Sheriff's Office to use the bathroom.
In March 2011, she filed a charge of sex discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
After doing so, Jones claims she was retaliated against by "being treated in a hostile and abusive manner, or alternatively, by being given the cold shoulder, and she began being written up, and her job was threatened."
During a May 25, 2011, meeting with the sheriff, Jones claims she told the sheriff she felt she was being retaliated against. The suit states she was fired four hours later.
The suit requests a jury trial and seeks damages including $350,000 in front pay."
