Arundel executive files ethics complaints

September 01, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens has taken the unusual step of filing ethics complaints against two former county employees who are leading a multimillion-dollar lawsuit alleging that the county misspent money it collected through developer fees.

The complaint names former county attorney Phillip F. Scheibe, who represents homeowners seeking more than $30 million in fee refunds, and former planning director Robert J. Dvorak, who has helped the homeowners examine county records for examples of improper spending.

Scheibe and Dvorak have denied any wrongdoing.
