PostSubject: Damn right: Anderson appeals $850,000 verdict to fired city workers   Tue Oct 10, 2017 9:02 pm

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - The city of Anderson is appealing a federal judge’s ruling that it must pay about $850,000 to eight people who were fired from their jobs when a new mayor took office in 2012.
The city’s filing with the federal appeals court in Chicago seeks to overturn the verdict in the lawsuit claiming the workers were wrongfully fired by Republican Mayor Kevin Smith’s administration because they supported the Democratic incumbent in the 2011 city election.
The (Anderson) Herald Bulletin reports the city’s insurance company urged the appeal. The city is responsible for paying $150,000, with the insurance company currently owing about $700,000.
An attorney for the city has argued that the fired workers had policy-making positions and could be replaced by the mayor.
