Local attorney files suit against county officials

A strong opponent of the last Smith County jail plan is filing suit against county officials.

Attorney Ken Good wants a court to rule that Smith County Judge Joel Baker and Commissioner JoAnne Fleming violated the Texas Open Meetings Act and held secret sessions on the jail plan.

But, Judge Baker says that's not the case, no laws were broken, and he welcomes the court's ruling.

Judge Baker went on to say that this action by Good is purely political.
