BRADENTON, Fla. — A Jefferson County, Ala., resident yesterday filed a 14-count lawsuit against hundreds of people and firms connected with the county's troubled $3.2 billion sewer debt program.

The 44-page civil lawsuit does not specifically name Jefferson County, but it lists as defendants current and former county officials, investment banks, underwriters, bond insurers, persons who have been convicted of corruption in rebuilding the sewer system, and 582 "fictitious" defendants.
