Former state House Rep. Jeremy Durham saw his effort to recoup the lifetime benefits he lost in his expulsion from the legislature dismissed today by a federal judge, The Tennessean reports. U.S. District Judge Aleta Trauger ruled that Durham’s lawsuit, filed against the state finance commissioner, legislature administrator and state treasurer, was pointed in the wrong direction. The defendants took no part in the expulsion, Trauger ruled. “Suing the named defendants in this case amounts to an attempt to make an end-run around a challenge to the expulsion itself,” she said.
