Federal complaints two women filed against former Property Assessor Bill Boner after he fired them have cost Rutherford County more than $140,000 - and counting.
Murfreesboro Post reporter Sam Stockard reports trial is set for November 3rd in U.S. District Court in Nashville on discrimination complaints filed by Kathy Dumm and Janie Zumbro against Rutherford County, Boner and former assistant Ryan Duggin, according to the federal court clerk's office.
Rutherford County officials confirmed the county has spent $142,387 on legal fees in the case since the two women took their cases to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in early 2012.
Dumm and Zumbro claim they were fired by Boner after they complained about being sexually harassed in 2012. Boner, who sold his Readyville farm last year and moved to Crossville after losing the 2012 election, has denied any wrongdoing.
