TB fight continues

May 24, 2007

Dawson-  The fight over who will transport a Terrell County Tuberculosis patient to a South Carolina hospital rages on. 

Terrell County Sheriff John Bowens says the Health Department pulled back from an agreement to send a health worker with the Sheriff's deputy to transport 41 year old Michael Greene. 

Both sides argued their cases Monday before Judge John Crosby. The Terrell County Health Department claims Georgia law says the Sheriff is responsible for transporting Greene. Bowens argued Greene's medical problems created a liability for his office.

Crosby said Thursday afternoon he hadn't heard from either attorney and will talk with both sides Friday in hopes of reaching an agreement before the weekend.
