Bean alleges ‘vendetta’ behind Littlefield's City Court moves

Chattanooga City Judge Russell Bean charged Thursday evening that Mayor Ron Littlefield’s talk about moving City Court is part of a “vendetta” against City Judge Sherry Paty over last year’s Pet Company case.

“This allegedly stems from the case between McKamey Animal Shelter and a local Pet Company where McKamey lost the case,” Bean said in an e-mail Thursday night. “They allegedly feel that Judge Paty ruled wrongly and they are upset. Allegedly they have banned (sic) together and are after Judge Paty and want to embarrass her and make her judicial life miserable.”

McKamey Executive Director Karen Walsh said in an e-mailed statement Thursday night that she was “astonished by Judge Bean’s evaluation of this situation.”

“All of the officers at McKamey animal center including myself have a good working relationship with Judge Paty and have great respect for the judicial system,” Walsh wrote.

Finally! Someone(Judge Bean) has the ---- um courage to say it. King Littleman has a vendetta! Don't know if about McKamey organization is involved - but if someone with the right skills digs deeper into EVERY move KLM makes, you will find either a motive that benefits him or is pay back for DARING to challenge him.

I don't know how to get them involved, but if the TBI would just poke their noses a wee bit into Ron Littlefield's dealings, we'd have a new mayor.
