Knox County has sued former Knox County Trustee Mike Lowe and two ex-staffers, Delbert Morgan and Ray Mubarak, alleging that they filed false invoices with the county for services not rendered or money not owed. The allegations against Lowe also include charges that he paid Morgan wages he did not earn, paid Mubarak for work not performed and schemed with Mubarak to overbill the county for title services. The charges track the findings of a Knox County grand jury. While some questioned why the suit was filed before trials are completed, the county said the time period for taking action was about to expire. Knoxnews has more.
