The Board of Supervisors meeting took a bizarre turn as an attorney informed them he was suing over unpaid overtime.The suit is being filed in federal court on behalf of corrections officers and deputies. Greg Petersen used the public comment portion to tell Chairman Mick Gleason he was filing federal lawsuits on behalf of the groups, then the County Attorney Theresa Goldner said it would be vigorously defended and they’ll ask the court for sanctions for a frivolous claim. Petersen attempted a similar lawsuit in San Diego in 2010 but the police union sued him for legal malpractice.
