A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by Kenton County Airport Board Chairman Jim Huff and his wife after an airport secretary that Huff called accidentally overheard their private conversation.
Spaw took notes on the conversation and recorded a portion of it.
Huff and his wife filed a lawsuit accusing Spaw of wiretapping, but on Friday, U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning ruled that even though the cell phone call was accidental, Spaw was under no obligation to hang up.
The Huffs' attorney said they are considering an appeal.
