A judge has set a trial date for Walton County Commission Chairman Scott Brannon on contempt of court charges.
Brannon is accused of violating a 2009 court order against violating Florida' sunshine laws. He allegedly sent e-mails involving county business from his personal computer and personal e-mail account. Walton County resident Suzanne Harris, who brought the first sunshine lawsuit in 2009 was back in court Monday.
Another Walton County resident, Driftwood Estates Homeowners Association President Alan Osborne, also showed up claiming he has additional emails proving other commissioners violated open government laws. Judge David Green ruled he did not have sufficient interest in the case
Brannon's trial date is June 12th. He' already announced he will not run for re-election this year.
