MARION COUNTY, Kan. (KAKE) - Another lawsuit has been filed against several officials for the raid of the Marion County Record last August.

Eric Meyer, the publisher and editor of the Record, filed the lawsuit Monday. The lawsuit alleges officials violated his constitutional rights during the raid, and blames the death of his mother Joan, which happened the day after the raid, on their actions. The suit lists the City of Marion, the Marion County Board of Commissioners, former mayor David Mayfield, former police chief Gideon Cody, former city administrator Brogan Jones, sheriff Jeff Soyez, acting chief Zach Hudlin, council member Zach Collett, and detective Aaron Christner as defendants.

Meyer is seeking more than $5 million, as well as $4 million in punitive damages.

Meyer's lawsuit is the fourth suit that has been filed since the raid, following reporters Deb Gruver and Phyllis Zorn, as well as office manager Cheri Bentz.
