Ky. county hit by tornado in legal fight with company

A Kentucky county hit by a 2012 tornado is being sued for nearly $1 million by a Lexington company that provided rented trailers, generators, all-terrain vehicles and other equipment.
The Lexington Herald-Leader ( ) reports Morgan County officials agree they owe something to Emergency Disaster Services for the rental equipment. But they say the bill should be less than the $954,935 EDS is demanding.
The company is owned by Jerry Lundergan, a past state Democratic Party chairman and father of Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.
Lundergan says his company provided the help that then-Morgan County Judge-Executive Tim Conley requested when West Liberty was in ruins.
Conley is now serving a prison sentence for an unrelated bribery scheme.
The March 2012 tornado leveled downtown West Liberty and killed a half-dozen people.
