Severance deal with fmr. Anderson Co. Admin. ruled ‘null and void’

ANDERSON, SC (WSPA) – A new ruling from the South Carolina Court of Appeals means former Anderson County Administrator Joey Preston will not get his severance.

The $1.1 million severance agreement has been the source of nearly a decade of legal battles.

The appeals court ruled Wednesday that the agreement is “null and void” because more than half of the seven council members who passed the deal had clear conflicts of interest.
