Former TVA Senior Vice President Anda Ray’s name is on the witness list for the upcoming coal ash spill worker trial, but her attorney filed a motion to quash the subpoena.
Witness lists set in ash worker trial

Both sides in the upcoming ash spill worker trial have submitted the names of witnesses they expect to call. One of the names on the list for the plaintiffs is Roane County Commission Chairman Randy Ellis.

“Whatever is asked of me I will be truthful,” Ellis said last week.

The litigation stems from the cleanup of the ash spill, which occurred at TVA’s Kingston Fossil Plant. On Dec. 22, 2008, an early morning dike failure resulted in the release of more than 5 million cubic yards of fly ash.
