UPDATE II: Papers were served 4/22, with this note “recall per attorney – paid in full.”
UPDATE – The papers have been served and returned.
How things proceed from here is up for question, considering that Hunnicutt is current with the hospital. Will update with current info. Here’s the rest original blog post:
This KNS story says that Knox County Criminal Court Clerk candidate Jason Hunnicutt is current on all bills with East Tennessee Childrens Hospital:
Knox County Criminal Court Clerk candidate Jason Hunnicutt does not owe money to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, according to hospital officials.
“His bill is paid,” hospital spokeswoman Erica Estep told the News Sentinel Tuesday.
The statement from the hospital came after a collection agency had filed April 2 in the civil division of Knox County General Sessions Court to sue Hunnicutt, an assistant Knox County district attorney general, for $486.64 in back payments and $136 in court fees.
Our previous story.
A couple other blog posts out there on the Interwebs mentioned that a court date has been set for Hunnicutt. That was before (this is us showing our work here) any confirmation of a lawsuit had been verified with the hospital, and before any papers had been served to Hunnicutt, and before the record of those papers being served had made it back to be filed in the courthouse, which still hasn’t happened, and likely won’t, since he’s paid the bill. I’m going to drop usage of the editorial “we” here and reckon that there probably won’t be a court date on this matter, neither before nor after the May primary.
