Watson claims Cook called her derogatory names in front of witnesses.
The issue is scheduled to be heard Jan. 3 in Chattooga County Magistrate Court.
One name appears in a transcript from Dec. 14 when Cook attempted to depose Watson. The other name does not appear in the transcript.
The two have been at odds for weeks about a deposition Cook
seeks from Watson. Cook believes that postings to Watsons Web site are relevant to a lawsuit in which he represents plaintiff Janice Galloway, who is suing Lyerly Mayor Chuck Jones.
Watson has maintained the postings are irrelevant and
claimed First Amendment-type protections from responding to a deposition. On Dec. 14, she walked out of the attempted deposition in Cooks office. On Dec. 21, Watson was ordered by a Chattooga County Superior Court judge to answer Cooks questions, and a date of Jan. 11 was set for another deposition.
Cook said Thursday that the Georgia criminal code Watson cites in her application was declared unconstitutional in
1982. He described Watson as nutty as anybody Ive ever seen.
Rome attorney David Guldenschuh, who is representing Watson in the deposition issue, declined to comment based on my client relationship with Ms. Watson.
