HOMERVILLE, GA (WALB) - The President of a South Georgia civil rights group was planning Monday to sue the Clinch County Board of Commissioners.
Bobby Worthy, President of Justice League United based in Waycross, delivered the official notice at the county commission meeting Monday morning.
He said the county commissioners were discriminating against him by repeatedly not allowing him to speak about his concerns regarding the commissioners conduct, specifically as it related to a nightclub where a college student was murdered in May, 2014.
"Because of the council's willful, twice, intent to not allow me to get on the agenda as everyone else is allowed to by putting in a formal request. With no explanation, they denied me," said Worthy.
After the meeting, County Commission Chairman Roger Metts emphasized that the commission treats everyone the same.
