Fired Ex-CPD Blue Wins Lawsuit

Item: Ex police officer wins wrongful termination suit/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.

More Info: A former Coeur d'Alene police officer was awarded more than $3 million on Wednesday in a wrongful termination suit against the city of Coeur d'Alene. According to the tort claim records in federal court, Daniel Dixon, a 17-year-veteran of the force, was terminated after the department finished a six-month investigation into allegations he tampered with a subordinate officer's work schedule and cheated on his own time card. City legal representatives said Dixon was demoted after the internal investigation found Dixon had been guilty of the allegations, and that the officer stopped showing up for work after that.
