Chattanooga Court Clerk Appointment Raising Eyebrows

Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield says his plan to name his deputy, Anita Ebersole, as city court clerk this month is a move designed to help the clerk’s office transition to modern times and implement a paperless system. But critics question why he's in such a rush to install Ebersole in the position just weeks before he leaves office. The court clerk's office has been run by an interim clerk for the last four and a half years. Two city judges served by the office reportedly are suspicious about Littlefield's proposal, reports Chattanoogan.com.
