Judge again denies back pay to Delta tax collector
Published: November 10,2011
GREENVILLE — A federal judge has again denied a petition from Washington County tax collector Patricia Lee, who is trying to get back pay for a period when she was under suspension.
The Delta Democrat Times reports Lee had asked U.S. District Judge Michael Mills to reconsider his ruling in June that the county was only obligated to pay Lee for services performed in her official capacity — services she could not perform under suspension.
Mills ruled against Lee again this week.
Lee was acquitted in 2009 of two counts of attempting to defraud the state in an illegal car tag scheme.
She sought back pay from Dec. 27, 2007, to April 9, 2009. She sued the county when it denied her request.
Lee has not decided on whether to appeal.
