Key noted a similar case in Knightstown some years back in which a former employee sued town officials. Town officials refused to release the agreement because it had been sealed, he said, but a court eventually ruled that the confidentiality agreement violated state law.
Franklin acknowledged that he had signed an agreement not to talk about the settlement, but he said he wasn’t sure he had ever had a written document outlining its terms.
“I don’t know that there’s anything here I could give you,” he said.
We’ll look forward to that phone call on Tuesday.
