City Council votes yes to continue legal battle against former health admin.
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock City Council gave the go ahead to continue with legal action against the city's former health administrator.
It's a case we continue to follow that started back in 2007 when city leaders accused AAG and owner Ted Parker of overcharging tax payers by as much as $6 million. With Friday's action, the city will continue to pay the legal fees for current employees and former elected officials involved in the suit.
The goal is to recover about $2 million in legal fees. Paul Beane was the only councilman who voted against continuing, though Mayor Martin did recuse himself for the vote involving the former mayor.
