Former Somerset Deputy Wins Again

PRINCESS ANNE, MD – Maryland’s Court of Special Appeals has ruled that the firing of former Somerset deputy Troy Durham by Sheriff Bobby Jones was arbitrary and capricious.  This overturns a 2010 ruling by Circuit Court Judge W. Newton Jackson III.

Durham has already won $1.1 million federal civil judgment against Jones.  He is currently garnishing Jones’ salary.

Durham’s attorney states that the decision implies that Durham receive back pay and benefits.
