According to his complaint filed in the US District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Suttles notified his supervisor:
This all seems rather moronic. The assertion that viewing a training video will have an adverse effect upon Suttles is seemingly absurd. Yet he picked a fight which is rather stupid if you ask me.
Suttles service has not been without controversy. His notion of treating people with respect and dignity must have been at work when, in 2014, he told a Gulf War Navy veteran suffering from PTSD who was seeking disability benefits: “I mean, hey, you were in the Navy. You weren’t even fighting on the ground. To me it would have been exciting. What do you mean stressful?” Suttles is not terribly bright. The Social Security Administration apologized to the veteran.
Scuttles is represented by Robert Warren Painter who appears to be a sole practitioner. Suttles' law degree, by the way, is from Samford University, a once segregated Christian U. in Alabama.
