Public officials named in a lawsuit by former Quitman police captain Terry Bevill deny allegations they retaliated against him in a Texas Lawyer article. Terry Bevill has filed a federal lawsuit claiming he was the target of a retaliation campaign and fired over an affidavit that supported a change of venue for a Wood County Sheriff’s Department jailer. Bevill’s attorney and SMQG name partner Laura Benitez Geisler explains why she took the case. “This is one of those cases,” said Laura Benitez Geisler, partner in Sommerman, McCaffity, Quesada & Geisler in Dallas. “I took it because I really believe in my client. It’s the right thing to do. This kind of abuse of power needs to be called out. They need to be held accountable.”
Bevill is represented by Ms. Geisler and the firm’s Sean McCaffity and Jody Rodenberg.
