Ethics case on hold after Fulton commissioner challenges board’s powers

Ethics case on hold after Fulton commissioner challenges board's powers
June 24, 2010 --

The Fulton County Ethics Board has placed its yearlong investigation of County Commissioner Lynne Riley on hold, after her attorney filed a last-minute lawsuit challenging the board’s jurisdiction. Board chairman Donald P. Edwards said the six complainants against Riley deserve swift resolution, and the board prides itself on speedy, sound decision-making. In this case, he said, “Commissioner Riley has been an exception to that expeditiousness.”
