Charges are being dismissed against a Hawkins County circuit court clerk.

Hawkins County Clerk of Courts Sarah Davis was charged in February after a staffing dispute on January 30. According to court records, Davis initially refused an order from Hawkins County sessions judge Todd Ross to send a collections clerk to his courtroom.

However, she relented a short time later and sent a clerk. Because of that, district Attorney General Barry Staubus dismissed the charge after determining that Davis complied with the judge's order prior to an arrest warrant charging her with contempt.
