Malicious Prosecution Lawsuit Filed

June 2009

Rick Hall and Mike Tanner filed a counterclaim for malicious prosecution, defamation, and the tort of outrage against a credit union on behalf of the credit union’s former manager. The former manager was terminated because of alleged irregularities in a series of loans to one of the credit union’s customers. Subsequently, the former manager was indicted on criminal charges in federal court; however, these charges were dismissed for insufficient evidence. In the meantime, the credit union filed a civil lawsuit against the former manager related to the alleged irregular loans. After the dismissal of the criminal charges, Mr. Hall and Mr. Tanner filed a counterclaim in the civil lawsuit on behalf of the former manager.
