City faces former employee lawsuit

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A former city employee is going to court to get her job back.

In the federal lawsuit, Serless West claims she was first demoted for claiming she was being discriminated against in the finance department and then fired for reporting financial irregularities at Water, Gas, and Light.

West is suing the city, former interim city manager Tom Berry and former chief financial officer JoEllen Brophy.

City Attorney Nathan Davis and Tom Berry both did not want to comment until they had a chance to read the lawsuit, and consult with others involved in the matter.
