Poplar Bluff city manager files defamation lawsuit

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

In mid-October, city manager Doug Bagby filed a defamation lawsuit against Angela Pearson.

The suit accuses Pearson of damaging Bagby's reputation when she made public claims that he did city business with his friends and neighbors.

"This is the kind of stuff a person has to deal with if they speak up," Pearson said.

Bagby's attorney says he expects the case will be back in court by the end of the year.
