      Settlement agreed upon in lawsuit against Timmonsville

      A settlement has been agreed upon in a lawsuit filed against the Town of Timmonsville by its former town administrator and clerk treasurer.

      Last May, town council fired Mark Fountain and Dora Lee saying they failed to perform their duties of service.

      They sued the town shortly after for Breach of Contract saying they were fired because they were white. The two argued their reputations were diminished, harmed and damaged from statements made by Timmonsville Town Council members.

      Fountain and Lee's attorney, Louis Nettles, says details of the settlement would be released Monday.
