A Little Rock attorney has filed a civil lawsuit against the state treasurer over an incident last month that turned into a shoving match.
Attorney Luther Sutter filed the lawsuit Monday in Pulaski County Circuit Court.
Sutter represents a former treasurer's office employee who filed a federal lawsuit against Arkansas Treasurer Dennis Milligan and his chief of staff alleging defamation.
Before a deposition in the case in February, Sutter entered the room on his cellphone and cursed. Sutter says he apologized to Milligan's wife, who was in the room.
