A lawsuit between the Sheriff of Buckingham County and four former employees is now over. A federal judge ruled in favor of Sheriff Danny Williams.

When Williams won the 2003 election, he chose not to reappoint three dispatchers and one secretary.

The four filed a lawsuit claiming he violated their civil rights, but a federal judge disagreed, and dismissed the lawsuit.
