Another suit filed between Jeffersonville court and clerk

Legal wrangling continues between Conlin and Pierce

(Continued)

JEFFERSONVILLE —

 

AFFIDAVIT ALLEGATIONS

Two affidavits also were submitted as part of the court filing by city clerk employees Jennifer Boyd and Jamie Miller. In both affidavits, claims were made against Pierce and Kelly that they have subjected the employees to intimidation and verbal assaults.

“During the two years of employment by the judge I, along with my colleagues, were subject to regular verbal assaults wherein the judge engaged in screaming rants and raves,” according to Boyd’s affidavit. “[They] would include tirades questioning our loyalty, threats to fire or discharge the staff and general acts of intimidation.”

Miller’s affidavit included similar allegations and was noted as the reason why she had not approached the judge and attempted to perform the clerk’s functions in court.

Boyd’s affidavit also said that she witnessed Kelly remove the dockets from the clerk’s office. After the incident, she notified Conlin that the dockets were taken and that the Pierce refused to return the records to the clerk.

“I have not approached Ms. Kelly about performing my assigned job duties for fear of retaliation, retribution and verbal assault form the judge,” according to her affidavit.

When asked about the incidents, Pierce again said he could not comment at the advice of his attorney.
