Another Suit Filed Against City of Detroit

Comments (0)

Just on the heels of the recent huge whistleblower verdict against the City of Detroit and Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, the former Chief Financial Officer of the Detroit Public Schools is now in court against the city.  Dori Freelain, who served as the CFO for  three years until she was terminated in June, 2007, filed her claim in the Wayne County Circuit Court.  She is seeking damages in excess of $25,000.00.

Ms. Freelain alleges that she was fired from her position wrongfully and without justification and alleges that her job performance was "exceptional."  The DPS argues that she was terminated due to her "job performance."

While the merits of this case will be sorted out in the courtroom, it is unfortunate that the City of Detroit is being sued again by one of its own employees.  In the whistleblower case, former police officers were the plaintiffs.  The city has more financial problems that it can handle and losing trial verdicts will only dig a deeper hole.
