O’Dell asks judge to force deposition and fine journalist
CAMDEN COUNTY - Katherine A. O’Dell, attorney for County
Commissioners Greg Hasty, Don Williams and Beverly Thomas, have asked the
federal court judge to force Lake Sun Reporter Joyce Miller to answer questions
and to fine her and her attorney Jean Maneke.
Miller was subpoenaed to give a deposition in the lawsuit filed by Rowland Todd against the three county commissioners.
Todd is claiming the commissioners violated his First Amendment rights of Freedom of Speech because he spoke out against what he felt was the county wasting money in the hiring of a new Human Resources Administrator and also claims that Hasty publicly called him a thief in that he “stole records” from the Human Resource Department.
It has not been stated why Miller, who is not connected to the case or any of the parties involved was ordered to give a deposition.
O’Dell claims in her request filed with the court on February 27 that during Miller’s deposition on February 13, she claimed “newsgathering privilege” objections to many of the questions during the deposition.
O’Dell wants the judge to force Miller to give another deposition and to not allow her to use “newsgathering privilege.”
