Controversy over the color of carpet is the straw that broke a Jefferson County Justice of the Peaces Camels back on whether or not to pursue a lawsuit against the county. Justice of the Peace Paul Brown says he is sick of his name being dragged through the mud about the color of carpet he requested in his new office. Now hes taking action on something he says he should have done a long time ago. Monday, Brown told commissioners that he has received an unfair workload for years when it comes to the number of arraignments hes had to do compared with his colleagues. Brown says the final straw was criticism he received over a disagreement about carpet color. The JP says he never wanted to cost the county extra moneyhe simply wanted to keep the same color carpet that was in his old officeCowboy Blue. Enough is enough but they backed me into a corner and now I`m gonna check with the NAACP and the Justice Department and see if we got a lawsuit," Brown told Hometown News. KBTV-4 News also spoke with Jefferson County Assistant District Attorney Tom Rugg who says, I can tell you his recollection doesnt comport with mine; and in my judgment he has no claims for any racial discrimination. We also spoke with Jefferson County Commissioner Bo Alfred who says the carpet issue never should have gotten to this point. In the end, the carpet in his office will be a rust color rather than Cowboy Blue and will come at no cost to taxpayers. http://www.kbtv4.tv/news/default.asp?mode=shownews&id=9159 ---- Yup.
