A lawsuit filed just before the school year claims that Knox County Commissioner Evelyn Gill physically and psychologically abused a student with special needs in 2017, Knoxnews reports. The student’s parents are suing Gill, Knox County, the Knox County Board of Education, Schools Superintendent Bob Thomas and the South-Doyle Middle School Principal Andrew Brown. An attorney representing the family said each party has "agreed to stay the proceedings pending a mediation to explore a resolution of all claims."
