Another Lawsuit Filed Between Warren County Commissioner, Resident

Posted Updated

WARREN COUNTY, N.C. — More charges are flying in a couple of lawsuits involving a Warren county commissioner and a Warrenton resident.

This week, Robert Lowery filed a countersuit against Warren County Commissioner Luke Lucas.

Lucas had sued Lowery after he wrote a letter to the editor, following a newspaper article that reported on an $11,000 judgment against Lucas, who had failed to pay off a student loan. Lowery also questioned Lucas's ability to serve as an attorney and county commissioner.

Lucas then sued two newspapers for printing the letter.
