Dothan Personnel Board Update

The Dothan Personnel Board's investigation of Chief White is back to court, but it will be a while before the judge rules in the case.

Judge Larry Anderson prefaced Monday’s hearing by saying the stay he issued applies only to the four police department employees who claim the investigation is illegal.

Attorneys for those employees had claimed the stay shut down the "entire" investigation.

Those same attorneys also claim the personnel board has no legal authority to conduct the probe.

Judge Anderson has given the employees seven days to submit written arguments in the case.

The personnel board will then have another seven days to put their position in writing.

The judge will then rule on whether the personnel board investigation can continue.
