Bonar, Bucher & Rankin’s attorneys are proud of our many accomplishments with emphasis in the employment litigation field. The following is a list of recent notable cases in which, led by our founder Barbara Bonar, were successful in obtaining a favorable result for our clients.

  • James Thomas Shaw v. Carroll County Sheriffs Office, et al. - This Kentucky State Whistleblower action arose after Chief Deputy Shaw blew the whistle on the Carroll County Sheriff for illegal activities that included tampering with physical evidence and theft. Following such reports, Chief Deputy Shaw was wrongfully terminated. As his attorneys, we are proud that Mr. Shaw came to this office to seek justice, and commend him for his perseverance in pursuing this matter. The $300,000.00 plus settlement we were able to obtain on his behalf exemplifies a public recognition of his courageous efforts in exposing this corruption. (read more here)
