Flournoy Walker and Wright

Lufkin attorney Bob Flournoy filed a motion of nonsuit Tuesday in his legal action against Angelina County and the commissioners court regarding the termination of former county engineer Chuck Walker.

The nonsuit came a day before the 159th District Court was to convene and consider a motion to abate filed by the county’s attorney in Walker’s whistleblower lawsuit. Walker filed suit against the county, alleging he was terminated from his position because he was uncovering illegal actions by commissioners before he was hired.
