Current and former Jeff. Co. Coroners reach settlement in lawsuit over wrongful termination

A lawsuit is over in the case against the Jefferson County Coroner, who was being sued for wrongful termination of the former Coroner.  Jesse Paulley sued Holmes for wrongful termination in 2007. 

According to court papers, Coroner Ron Holmes and former Coroner Jesse Paulley have reached a settlement of more than $64,000.  Now, Paulley’s attorney has filed a motion to make sure that the $64,000 is actually paid.

And who will pay?  The money will come out of public funds; tax dollars will pay Holmes’ settlement.

Recently, Holmes announced his plans to retire at the end of the October amid allegations of wrong-doing in his office, and the possibility of more lawsuits filed by his employees.

Holmes’ replacement has not yet been named by the mayor.
