Angelina County Settles Four Year Old Lawsuits

Angelina County commissioners settled two pending lawsuits Tuesday, filed against them back in the year 2000.

In the lawsuits, two former county court-at-law judges were seeking back pay from the county. Under the settlement, Joe Martin will receive more than $36,000. Holly Perkins-Meyers will get $65,000.

Martin and Meyers sued the county after the commissioners entered a program that allowed county court-at-law judges to earn higher salaries through filing fees rebated back to the county.

A third lawsuit, filed by county court-at-law judge Lisa Birkhalter, is still pending.
