Placeholder Image
Dawson County Sheriff's officers named in a federal lawsuit by a Roswell citizen journalist have responded, claiming her "alleged injuries and damages were proximately caused by her intentional, criminal actions," according to court documents filed last week. Nydia Tisdale filed the complaint May 10 in U.S. District Court in Gainesville, claiming her constitutional rights were violated at an Aug. 23, 2014, political event at Burt's Farm in Dawsonville. Tisdale recorded Georgia Republican officials at the event before she was arrested by Dawson County law enforcement.
