Fred Potter filed fraud charges against Cassandra Holmes in the summer of 2018. Court documents showed that an out of state handwriting expert issued a detailed report supporting the alleged forgery.

Judge Medlock stated that “it is the opinion of this court that the defendant’s motion should be granted on the grounds of another pending action in Potter v. Holmes.”

Potter’s ongoing legal battle against his niece will continue in a Scott County Court under Judge David McCormick.
