A judge dismissed the lawsuit against Lanier County Sheriff Nick Norton on June 2.
The County Board of Commissioners filed the civil action to have Norton stay within the budget it set.
Norton says it's unrealistic to follow that budget.
He says residents should be furious with the unnecessary waste of money.
The sheriff's office has been furloughed throughout the month of June.
