Former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas and Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy David Hendershott have filed multi-million dollar claims against the County.
Additionally, former Deputy County Attorney Lisa Aubuchon has amended her earlier $10 million claim and is now seeking $22.5 million.
Both Hendershott and Thomas are asking for $37.5 million for damages the men allege stem from their years of conflict with the Board of Supervisors and others.
The notice of claim was filed Monday and is a precursor to a lawsuit. It also indicates a future notice of claim will be filed against state officials.
The Arizona Republic reports the claim names former County Attorney Rick Romley and his employees and representatives, members of the Board of Supervisors and their employees.
Hendershott and Thomas claim county employees engaged in theft, perjury, fraud, retaliation, defamation, racketeering and misuse of power.
