Amid city drama, Jackson attorney recuses herself

As Jackson’s sexual harassment lawsuit saga continues, City Attorney Monica Joiner is recusing herself where she sees fit, including in a case involving her fiance, Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber’s bodyguard.

So far, Joiner has recused herself from three cases: two racial discrimination suits against the city and one sexual harassment suit against Yarber, in which Joiner is accused of pursuing a sexual relationship with the mayor.
