Back to court

An East Tennessee woman who said she was sexually harassed while working for a now former Anderson County court clerk is getting another chance to seek damages. A three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit, U.S. Court of Appeals in Cincinnati has ruled that a federal judge gave bad direction to a jury hearing Gail Harness’s case in June 2021, preventing her from getting a fair chance at justice. Harness formerly worked for William Jones, who served as Circuit Court clerk from 2014-18 until he lost re-election. As clerk of the court system, he was a county officeholder. Harness sued Jones and Anderson County government in March 2018 and then she sued Anderson County in August 2019. Her case against Jones was dismissed
