Spradlin Counter Offers in Law Suit Against County
When Margaret Spradlin’s son Junior was sought by police for a murder in Virginia, her home got caught in the crossfire…literally. During the police search, Spradlin’s trailer caught fire in April 2011 so she and her daughter are suing Sullivan County Sheriff Wayne Anderson, 14 of his deputies and the county. The original lawsuit called for a total of $1.5 million. The county offered $85,000 to settle the lawsuit out of court. Spradlin has now counter offered asking for $225,000. The county’s risk management officer, the insurance provider and the sheriff’s department have been made aware of the new offer. Before a settlement can be reached, the County Commission’s Executive Committee and the insurance company would have to agree to the terms. If no settlement is reached, a federal trial date is set for January 2014.
