Attorneys for Los Alamos County are seeking to remove what it says is “unnecessary, inflammatory and inaccurate” language in a lawsuit filed against the county in district court by two former Los Alamos Police Department employees and a LAPD detective.
“ ... Plaintiffs have included excessive amounts of alleged detail which completely is unnecessary to state their case and services only to create false details to boost the shock value of their complaint,” attorneys (Randy Bartell and Jocelyn Barrett) representing the county said in their complaint.
The plaintiff’s attorneys, George Geran and Linda G. Hemphill, filed a lawsuit against the county in January, alleging they were unfairly treated by the county according to the New Mexico Fraud Against Taxpayers Act, The Whistleblower Protection Act, The Human Rights Act. They are also suing the county for breach of contract.
The plaintiffs are Randy Foster, Scott Mills and Paige Early. Foster and Mills were once commanders at the LAPD. Their suit alleges the county effectively ended the careers of all three plaintiffs at the department as a simple solution to a human resource issue involving the alleged erratic behavior of a colleague, Det. Brian Schamber.
