DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County interim administrator intends to file a $3 million lawsuit against the county.
On Tuesday night, Mike McCoy's Attorney Maurice King confirmed that he has sent an ante litem notice to county commissioners that he intends to file a lawsuit for McCoy.
King said the lawsuit will claim commissioners extended their search for the interim administrator in retaliation against McCoy, because of his activities as a whistleblower.

McCoy has worked for the county for 20 years and will begin his duties as interim administrator on Thursday.
