BRISTOL, VA (WJHL) - Bristol Virginia city leaders responded to News Channel 11's request for documents related to the proposed ouster of city council member Doug Fleenor.
On Thursday, councilman Fleenor sued the city.
The lawsuit against the city council came after Fleenor says he received a letter about a meeting to remove him elected office.
The suit claims the council's efforts are illegal.
We filed a request with the city for all email and text exchanges between the city manager and members of the city council regarding Fleenor's removal.
They responded to our request on Friday with texts and emails from city manager Randy Eads.
An email dated August 29 reads:
"This email has not been sent to Doug. Do not reply all to this email. Please see the attached notice of intent to remove a council member. I am prepared to move forward with confronting him on Tuesday in closed session and having a removal hearing on September 10 if necessary."
See a screenshot of the email below:
We also received several other emails, but they were heavily redacted.
That September 10 meeting has been canceled.
