Butler County President Judge Thomas Doerr

Lawyers representing Butler County President Judge Thomas Doerr have filed an appeal asking the Third Circuit Court of Appeals to dismiss the Crystal Starnes case.

Starnes, a county probation officer, sued Doerr, Deputy Court Administrator Thomas Holman and the Butler County Court system a year ago.

In her lawsuit, Starnes claimed that Doerr hired her as a county probation officer after he started a five-year sexual relationship with her in 2005, calling it a “business relationship.”Her lawsuit claims that Doerr continued to harass her after the sexual relationship ended in 2010.
