COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. -- Columbia County is responding to the lawsuit filed by a Martinez homeowner after a county employee entered her home without permission.

The surveillance video showing former Code Enforcement Officer Jimmy Vowell walking into Erica Masters' home made national news last summer. Vowell has since lost his job, and Masters has moved away.

Masters filed a lawsuit against Vowell and the county, seeking at least $300,000.

In official court documents obtained by News 12, the county denies that Masters was injured because of the action or is entitled to any relief.
