9th Circuit Backs Fired Lake City Cop

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a $3.2 million judgment against the city of Coeur d’Alene for firing a police lieutenant without cause. Dan Dixon, who had worked 17 years for the Coeur d’Alene Police Department, and his wife Heidi Dixon sued the city in 2009. His firing that summer followed a string of frivolous complaints against him by a subordinate, the couple argued. Hayden attorney Larry Beck said his clients urge city officials “to finally recognize and accept the jury’s unanimous verdict” in their favor. City Attorney Mike Gridley said he will review the decision and consult with outside legal counsel to consider what to do next/Scott Maben, SR. More here.

Question: Sounds like it's about time to pay, right?
