Snead filed a suit in state Supreme Court last month, maintaining the union failed to pay bills relating to legal work and lobbying work he did for the union and political action committee. Snead said while he was terminated by the union, he was never let go by the political action committee which officially a separate entity.

Dan Farrell, AME president, said Snead’s claims have no merit and he is “disappointed” by the lawsuit. “We let him go and terminated his services and now seems to feel we owe for services for which we did not hire him,” Farrell said.
