Lawsuit

  • A company that builds cages for inmate transport vans will pay $1 million to the family of a woman who drowned in floodwaters while trapped inside a sheriff’s department van outfitted by the company. WBTW-TV reports a court has approved the agreement between American Aluminum Accessories and the family of Nicolette Green.
  • A South Carolina newspaper is suing a school district over officials' lack of transparency in their handling of the resignation of a popular superintendent last month. The State newspaper in Columbia says it filed the lawsuit last week against the Lexington-Richland 5 school district. The newspaper argues that the school board approved a settlement with former superintendent Christina Melton behind closed doors. The suit alleges that's a violation of open meeting laws because board members didn't hold a public discussion or vote. Melton resigned unexpectedly last month, shortly after being named South Carolina's Superintendent of the Year.
  • A South Carolina man whose charges were dropped after police body camera footage showed he did not fight an officer who attacked him is suing the city of Rock Hill and U.S Rep. Ralph Norman for defamation. Travis Price's lawyer says he works second shift at a chemical plant and has no criminal record so the untrue items in a police news release were especially damaging. The lawsuit says Norman repeated those false police statements.
