Well, sort of. Roane County may not have a liability due to McFarland's actions because the harassee did not actually receive a paycheck from the County. The suit could be reinstated within 90 days with a new filing.

Tommy continues to act the gentleman in all this by maligning the lady's reputation.

Based on what the News Sentinel report says...

it may not bode well for the complainant's future, either. It noted that her complaint had been dismissed by fed EEOC. That is significant, and will likely have an influence on other outcomes, IMHO.

Actually...

he never said everybody is out to get him. That level of paranoia or whatever is a quality you have ascribed to him. That's not what he said. He said SHE was out to get him. That's specific, not general.

He's no saint - no more than either or us. He's human.

There were two levels at which the complaint was dismissed - not dropped. It's dropped if the complainant drops it. It's dismissed if somebody that has the authority to adjudicate dismisses it. But one agency dismissed it first (EEOC - federal level), then the State of TN dismissed it.

How do you suggest this accountability you mention should or could happen? The system of laws we have in this country is there to protect all of us. I think I recall that someone at some level had said the original complainant could re-submit the complaint (presumably with corrections, etc). Do you know if that has happened or not? I have heard nothing further.

If the complainant has stopped, then that is about it as far as holding accountable is concerned - at least until election time. The electorate has very good ability to hold officials accountable. All they gotta do is do it.

"he thinks he is above the law because he is a Roane County Official."
Is it your contention that anybody that is a Roane County Official thinks he/she is above the law?

RB

Come on RB

"he thinks he is above the law because he is a Roane County Official."
Is it your contention that anybody that is a Roane County Official thinks he/she is above the law?

Your question is bogus on the face of it. Anon dissed Tommy and no one else, and we should deal with the merits of that and not some imagined extension. You might refer Anon to the usage and rules link, for instance.

Yessir.

Was going to edit it but I can't.

RB

No biggie, Don't worry about

No biggie, Don't worry about it, just catch that next time. There's plenty there in Anon's post to argue with. I think we can read into the ruling a fairly serious homefield advantage on Tommy's part, but let's encourage anon to talk about facts and not imagined or implied character flaws.
