Madera County D.A. Facing Possible Censure for Workplace Harassment

Madera County Supervisors will meet Monday to discuss alleged “abusive conduct” at the hands of the county’s district attorney, David Linn. The special meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m.

A law firm was asked to look into the allegations against Linn and concluded they were valid.
