New paperwork was filed Thursday in Tonya Craft's federal lawsuit after a Georgia federal judge asked for more specifics, attorneys said.

U.S. District Judge Harold Murphy in mid-September ordered that Craft's $25 million lawsuit against 15 defendants, including her ex-husband and the Catoosa County Sheriff's Office, to be re-filed with more specific accusations.

This is the second time the judge has requested new language from Craft.

"We thought we had corrected what Judge Murphy wanted us to correct, but he thought it needed to be more specific," said Cary King, one of Craft's attorneys.

Craft, a former Chickamauga school teacher, filed suit after she was acquitted on 22 counts of various child molestation charges. She claimed she had been falsely accused and that people named in the suit had lied under oath.
