A trial involving Piney Township was set to have occurred this month but was delayed.

In a trial held Feb. 28 in Texas County Associate Circuit Court, a judge ruled against former Texas County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Melissa Dunn in her request to be compensated for unused vacation pay in 2013.

The case was decided with a judgment handed down by Judge Kerry Rowden in favor of the defendant, the Texas County Commission.

Dunn had filed the case in small claims court in early January. Her last day working with the department was Dec. 31, 2012.
