PAPILLION, Neb. (KMTV) — On Thursday, District Judge Geoffrey Hall granted a preliminary injunction that will temporarily prevent Sarpy County from appointing a new treasurer.
Former county treasurer, Brian Zuger was fired by the Sarpy County Board of Commissioners in April. He filed a motion for a preliminary injunction while he pursues a lawsuit against Sarpy County.
In a news release, the Sarpy County board said that Trace Jones will continue to serve at the Interim Sarpy County Treasurer “until all legal matters are resolved.” The board tabled a resolution to appoint Jones as a permanent replacement for the remainder of Zuger’s term.
The county board said that it is reviewing the ruling and considering its legal options. There is another hearing scheduled in Dodge County on August 6 at 10 a.m.
