The ex-Tellico Plains Chief of Police's wife, Marie Anne Isbell, filed a federal lawsuit which names Monroe County, and the newly appointed EMS Director Randy White as defendants.
The plaintiff (Isbell), alleges she was not re-hired by Monroe County EMS after the new EMS Director was appointed,....in part because her husband (Bill Isbell), did not support Randy White for Sheriff in the general election last year.
The lawsuit does not state any specific monetary amount--although it seeks compensation due to lost wages, pain, suffering, humiliation, and embarrassment.
