Legal Fight Over Between Warren Commissioner, Newspapers

Posted March 23, 2004

— The legal fight between a Warren County commissioner and two local newspapers appears to be over.

A judge dismissed a libel lawsuit Monday against County Commissioner Luke Lucas.

Robert Lowery filed the countersuit against Lucas over a critical letter.

Lucas withdrew his initial lawsuit against the papers in February. There is no word why Lucas changed his mind.

Lowery has 30 days to appeal the ruling.
