Four lawsuits and counting

The late comedian Lewis Grizzard, whose column appeared in this newspaper, was an oft-married guy who used to joke that there was a bumper sticker reading “Honk If You’ve Been Married To Lewis Grizzard.” Taking a new tack on an old theme, we’re going to start looking for stickers announcing, “Honk If You’ve Sued Sheriff Jim Matthews.” Four lawsuits have been filed against Matthews: one of them by former Sheriff Steve McCaskill; two by former Kershaw County employees, one of whom has filed multiple lawsuits in the past against various defendants; and the latest by David Dowey, a former deputy who unsuccessfully ran for the Democratic nomination for sheriff last year.
