Fired city attorney in Minot going after city

Minot, North Dakota
Minot, North Dakota

MINOT, N.D. (AP) -- The city attorney in Minot who was fired after only a month on the job says she intends to go after the city.

Colleen Auer says she is filing wrongful termination complaints with both state and federal agencies. She has made formal requests to the city to preserve all documents related to her hiring, employment and firing. She says, ''I'm coming after you for this.''

Auer was hired last month to replace the retired John Van Grinsven. She was fired Friday for what City Council President Jim Hatlelid called insubordination.

Auer claims she was fired in retaliation for a complaint she filed alleging harassment and a hostile work environment. The city isn't commenting on those allegations because of the pending complaints.
