LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The game of cat and mouse continues between Councilwoman Judy Green and her colleagues on the Metro Council. Tuesday night, Green's attorney, Derwin Webb, responded to the council's request for documents for her upcoming removal hearing.
The charging committee issued a subpoena for Green's tax records and receipts, but Webb responded that Green just doesn't have what they're asking for.
Earlier in the day, a group supporting the embattled councilwoman signed a petition and painted a black and white picture of her recent treatment by the Metro Council.
"To me this whole hearing is about white privilege," said Gracie Lewis, a Green supporter, "that's what it is white privilege."
Green faces a removal hearing accused of ethics violations for her management of the Green Clean Team which employed several of her relatives and her redirecting grant money given to the 100 Black Men of Louisville to other organizations without council approval.
County Attorney Mike O'Connell told the council in his opinion the charges could warrant the hearing to go on, even if Green resigns.
In his response to the charging committee's request for Green's tax returns from 2009-2010, Webb states, "The returns are beyond the scope of the proceedings and cannot be supplied."
As for time sheets and receipts of the Green Clean Team, Webb states "Green does not have any document that would allow her to respond."
As for emails concerning the Green Clean Team and 100 Black Men, he states in part, "she has no emails."
As for the request for photos or awards given to Green associated with the 100 Black Men grant, Webb responded in part, "She has only received a plaque from the Cowboys Little League football organization and it's mounted on the wall in her City Hall office.
And the request for all bills and receipts associated with a credit card issued to Green's aide, Andrea Jackson, Webb responded that Green never had any involvement with that card.
Thursday at 10 a.m., Councilman Kelly Downard will meet with the O'Connell and the lawyers on each side for a pre-hearing motion to discuss next week's removal hearing.
We were not able to reach Webb for comment Tuesday night.
