Former police chief sues Laramie

Laramie, Wyo. – Former Laramie Police Chief Bob Deutsch is suing the city of Laramie and the city manager.

Deutsch alleges he was fired in retaliation for bringing a defamation lawsuit in June against a private citizen.

Deutsch's attorney said the chief was fired because of what he said in court during that case under oath. He says you cannot be sued for testifying as a witness.

Deutsch was an at-will employee, which means he could be fired at anytime. He is suing the city for more than 500-thousand dollars.
