Knox County Circuit Court Clerk Cathy Shanks terminated her chief deputy, Tim Wheeler, last week in what is being called an office reorganization. Wheeler was released without notice and still had not received an official letter of termination as of today, according to his lawyer. Wheeler had worked for the clerk’s office since 2001. In a statement released after the firing, he accused Shanks of exhibiting “erratic and irrational behavior” and employing people who were not showing up to work. Knoxnews has more.
