MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Henri Brooks is suing the county, saying the commission didn't have the right to remove her from the board after an investigation uncovered she hasn't been living in her district.

Commissioner Chris Thomas said, "I don't think any judge in Shelby County wants to touch this because Henri Brooks has a lot of negativity attached to her."

Thomas says Books is synonymous with drama.

After investigating, the county attorney said she does not live in her district. Now she's out of a job, but her lawyers are saying not so fast.

Monday, they started the search for a judge to hear their argument, but it may take longer than expected, because of family connections and other conflicts of interest.

Brooks' attorney Michael Working said, "What we are trying to avoid here is a total appearance of impropriety. So nobody who comes out on the wrong end of a decision had sour grapes."

Her term on the county commission ends in August, so the legal system would have to get moving on this.

Her fellow commissioners don't think it has anything to do with her position on the board, and everything to do with her run for juvenile court clerk.

Thomas added, "She's got this charade going on trying to buy her some time and go to the August election. I just think it's going to backfire on her."

    Just in case anyone cares, she is now having another attorney speak for her instead of Wharton, but same firm. I am waiting for the hate comments to be addressed, guess nobody has a backbone. If she wins her case, then Memphis TN is the most corrupt judicial system in the nation.

    Ah, my morning ride in to work on 1070 WDIA .. I like Bobby O Jay (he has some common sense) but the callers will VOTE for her because of color of skin, not content of character .. If you don’t listen .. give it a try .. especially Janis “Full-of-herself” between 4-6PM … You will see what Memphis has to offer. I will again go down to Loraine Motel and ask MLK for forgiveness over dying for the likes of these people. Content of character people .. Content of character!
