A civil case against Sheriff Chris Eaton and four deputies has not been postponed as a result of the criminal case against them, so far.
In a telephonic conference on Feb. 17, Magistrate Judge E. Robert Goebel set dates for proceedings in the case of Billy Stinnett vs. Eaton et. al., which includes deputies Aaron Bennett, Adam Minor, Bobby McCown and Eric Guffey.
In the lawsuit, filed in February of last year in the United States District Court Western District of Kentucky at Bowling Green, Stinnett is demanding $25 million for damages incurred through alleged excessive force during Stinnett's arrest in February 2010, after leading police on a car chase and crashing a rented van with a mobile meth lab into a worship center on West Cherry Street.
“The conference just dealt with discovery in the case so we will be making depositions pretty soon,” said Laura Landenwich, attorney for Stinnett in the case.
