The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, punitive damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney's fees, costs and expenses and such other relief as the court deems just and appropriate. She is represented by Kevin C. Harris and Eric J. Holmes of Law Offices of Harris and Holmes PLLC in Ripley. The case has been assigned to Circuit Court Judge Thomas C. Evans III.
