York Sewage Lawsuits

A pretrial hearing on the cases was held Thursday in Sumter County circuit court.

Three years ago 35-year-old Arthur Jones, 44-year-old J.D. Coleman and Otha Hinson died while working on a city sewer line.

The lawsuits claim negligence against the city of York and call for the families of the deceased to be paid $5,000,000 in damages.
