Lawsuit against Anthony Foxx to go to trial

Next year. The basics from the Charlotte Observer:

A lawsuit alleging U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx performed little to no work in a past job at defunct Charlotte bus maker DesignLine will continue to move forward after an effort to settle the case in mediation failed.

The mediation took place on Oct. 10, but no resolution was reached, according to documents filed this month in federal bankruptcy court in Charlotte.

In August 2015, the trustee liquidating DesignLine filed suit against Foxx seeking the return of the pay he received as the company’s deputy general counsel from 2009 to 2013. The complaint said company documents showed little to no work by the former Charlotte mayor who joined President Barack Obama’s cabinet in July 2013.
