Parker Lawsuit Now Names Former Mayor Miller

The bitter fight between city hall and its former health insurance administrator has expanded. Former Mayor David Miller has now been added to a pending lawsuit. 

In March 2007 the city sued A.A.G., which used to be called Icon.  City officials have said that company owner Ted Parker overcharged taxpayers as much as $6 million.  Then, Parker filed his own lawsuit against the city of Lubbock. 

In a Dallas County lawsuit, Parker claims quote: "Miller ... [And other city officials] disparaged Icon and/or A.A.G. and their representatives to third parties and in the press.   This slander and disparagement was published in Dallas County Texas as well as other locations"

NewsChannel 11 left a message for Miller on his cell phone. He has not yet returned our phone call.
