LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A lawsuit against Lubbock County is officially back on the books. Elizabeth Overstreet sued the county in both state and federal courts.
Overstreet claims she was fired for reporting sexual harassment by a bailiff in Judge Brad Underwood's court. Her federal lawsuit was put on hold until the state lawsuit was resolved. It was resolved in the county's favor late last year.
Back in April, Overstreet asked that the federal lawsuit go forward again. On Friday, the judge ruled that it could proceed. Both sides are ordered to give the federal judge their thoughts on what effect the state case has on the federal lawsuit.
