Albany- Dougherty County Sheriff Jamil Saba today won the first battle in his lawsuit against the county commission.

Saba is suing the county for eliminating money for six positions on his staff. Today, Superior Court Judge Loring Gray ruled the County will have to pay for the Sheriff's lawyers handling the case against the county. Commissioners went to court to avoid paying the sheriff's legal fees.

"I really didn't want to go through all this because all it's doing is costing more money, but I have a job to do as a constitutional officer to serve and protect this community and that's exactly what I'm going to do," said Dougherty County Sheriff Jamil Saba.
