Brinkman ruled the City violated a the spirit of the temporary restraining order he issued feb. 24 by not continuing the Job benefits while Jones suit seeking his former Job is being settled in court. Jones was fired by the Anderson Board of Public works for what he alleges were political reasons. He is a Democrat precinct committeeman and former City Council member. The temporary restraining order was issued against the City prohibiting the employment of a director of operations for the City of Anderson transportation system or any maintenance employees. Different interpretations of that restraining order by Jones attorney Al Woolbert and City at Torney Charles Braddock led to Woolbert a filing of the contempt charge. Woolbert contended the City violated the restraining order because a new director of operations was hired and Jones was not retained until the Case could be settled. However Braddock claimed the City is not in violation because funds Are available to the salary for director of operations if Jones should win the Case. The position of cats general manager is vacant and the acting director Fred Whipple is being paid with those monies City controller James Steele testified. After about three hours of testimony Brinkman also said the City was not in contempt of court by naming Whipple As acting director and paying him from the general managers salary. But he said that the loss of Jones insurance and retirement benefits is in contempt of the restraining order on a technical basis. A if it takes the City to put him Back on the payroll and withhold his checks to keep the insurance go ing then that is what will have to happen a Brinkman said. He explained that he is trying to protect the rights of Jones while not interfering or interrupting the needed service of a Public transit system. During the testimony Steele said the City a insurance Carrier cuts off the coverage when an employee no longer works for the City. Braddock told the judge after the ruling that the City would find a Way to continue Jones benefits until the Case is settled. Woolbert also has filed motions to expunge the change of venue requested by the City and granted by Brinkman and to consolidate the hearing for a temporary restraining order temporary and permanent injunction which Are usually held separately. Brinkman will Rule on these motions at 1 30 . Monday. Woolbert argued that the City gave up its rights to a change of venue judge because both parties already began the Case with fridays hearing. Deputy City attorney Larry Swick claimed however the hearing did not constitute a trial so the City did not waive the right for a change of venue. Jones filed his complaint after he was terminated from the City payroll feb. 22. He was told he was dismissed Jan. 26. But was asked to stay on for a week to help the new director John Terry become acquainted with the Job. Jones complaint alleges he was told he could remain at cats As a Mechanic but was informed a week after his initial firing that he could not work at cats at All. He was then paid for two weeks vacation time. Terry resigned from the position after about two weeks after which time Whipple was named acting director of operations. Jones complaint states he wants his Job Back or salary and benefits he would have received until his retirement. The hearing on his complaint will be at 4 . Tuesday in Superior court 2.
