Cooper Lawsuits

By Ryan Dearbone | 

Monday, after a brief closed session, the Commission voted unanimously to pursue litigation against those who might have recieved money or gifts from Cooper.

The closed session was the second one the Commission has held to discuss the matter.

Mayor Elaine Walker had said recently the reasoning behind litigation would be to recoup as much of the city's money as they posssibly can.

Cooper was sentenced to prison last month for stealing more than 4 million dollars from the city.

The Commission says they will go after Cooper's past and present family members.
