Former Talladega Mayor Larry Barton is suing the man accused of beating him with a baseball bat. Benny Green is accused of attacking Barton last August. He's charged with assault in the case. Barton claims the attack was an attempt to have him removed from the mayor's office. He filed a lawsuit against Green and those he claims conspired with Green in the beating. A grand jury got the case last year and right now, Green is free on bond.
