Attorney Chris Cawood is seeking $100,000 in damages over a courthouse fracas that occurred in May 2009.
Roane County Sheriff’s Deputy Guy McGuckin used a chokehold to restrain Cawood, who was arrested and charged with resisting arrest.
A judge found Cawood not guilty during a trial last November.
In a lawsuit filed by his attorney, Dan Channing Stanley, Cawood alleges he was assaulted, falsely arrested and maliciously prosecuted.
