Former DES Chief Tim Jeffries, Onetime Aide Sues Arizona For Libel
"Former state Department of Economic Security Director Tim Jeffries and Charles Loftus, his ex-protective services chief, have filed a lawsuit against the state alleging Gov. Doug Ducey's administration libeled them in an investigative report about ammunition stockpiled at the social services agency. [...] The state's police agency in July released an audit that claimed Jeffries stockpiled an "excessive" amount of ammunition and firearms to "create his own police force" at DES, which is responsible for distributing social services to needy Arizonans. [...] About a month later, Jeffries said the report caused "considerable damage" to his professional reputation. He sought $5.1 million in damages through a notice of claim, a precursor to filing a lawsuit against the state."
