County Judges won't handle Goddard lawsuit

March 17, 2006

Albany - Dougherty County's Judges won't hear the civil case between Albany's former Civic Center Director and the city of Albany.

Mattie Goddard is suing the city of Albany and city manager, Alfred Lott. She claims Lott knowingly broke city policies when he fired her. The suit says Goddard should get her job back and get damages for pain and suffering.

Judge Loring Gray issued an order to recuse all Dougherty County judges from handling the case, since many of them know the people involved in the case.
