Mingo Judge Wants Suit Dismissed

Former Mingo County judge Michael Thornsbury is asking that a lawsuit against him be dismissed. The husband of his former secretary filed suit alleging malicious prosecution, wrongful imprisonment, and false arrest. Thornsbury is accused of having an affair with his secretary, and trying to frame her husband so he'd be out of the picture. The Charleston Gazette reports Thornsbury wants the lawsuit dismissed because a process server delivered the lawsuit to a house where Thornsbury no longer lives, and gave the lawsuit to Thornsbury's wife, who is divorcing him. Thornsbury has another court date coming up in January.
