Attorney limited in defending Andrews' lawsuit

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The Chiefland City Commission has ordered City Attorney Norm D. Fugate to withdraw from representing Chiefland's residents and the city commission in a legal suit filed by A.D. Andrews because the case costs the city $1,369 - thus far.

While Fugate's representation was limited, the commission, in its regular Monday meeting, decided they would like him to continue representing City Manager Grady Hartzog, a target of the suit, should he need legal representation.

The suit, filed Jan. 10 by Andrews seeks to have the court declare him a resident of Chiefland and that he is properly registered to vote in Chiefland city elections using his office address on First Street.

Named in the suit are Hartzog, Florida Secretary of State Kurt Browning and Levy County Supervisor of Elections Connie Asbell.

"I am concerned about the amount of money spent," said Mayor Teal Pomeroy referring to the $1,369 bill from Fugate for attending and participating in a deposition of Andrews. "I was told it was a friendly lawsuit."

Pomeroy said, "He (Andrews) said the city had to be in the lawsuit."
