5 Suing Judge, Alleging They Lost Jobs For Political Reasons

Three more people are joining a lawsuit against Knott County Judge Executive Randy Thompson.

Thompson denies terminating two workers for political reasons, but three more former employees have made the same charge.

Two former employees filed a lawsuit against the judge executive in January for violation of their rights after they say his associates told them not to support his opponent.

The three latest allege the same violation of rights in a court motion filed this week.

All five employees are seeking unspecified damages and reinstatement.
