The Director of the Bill Monroe Foundation is suing his employers. Campbell Mercer, director of the Bill Monroe Foundation, is suing the Ohio County Industrial Foundation. The O.C.I.F. oversees the foundation's funds.
In April Mercer was fired by the group. Mercer says they owe him more than two hundred thousand dollars in unpaid salary and benefits. In the countersuit the foundation says Mercer was not fulfilling his job obligations. They also say reimbursing Mercer for lost wages would be wrong. In November the two groups will meet in Hartford for a deposition meeting.
