Former Cuba, Mo. police officers sue city, allege wrongful termination

Posted: Updated:

CUBA, Mo. (KMOV.com) - Four former police officers of the Cuba Police Department are suing the city and various officials after being fired earlier this year.

Adam Carnal, Dane Corbett, Mike Sherman, and Jason Wilkerson reportedly filed suit on November 6, alleging they were wrongfully terminated and that their right to free speech was violated.

In February, Chief Paul Crow fired the policemen after they accused him of misconduct.

Some residents rallied against the firings and said Crow discharged the officers out of revenge, but Missouri officials cleared the police chief of any wrongdoing.

Aside from filing suit against the police chief and the city, the officers are also suing Mayor Ray Mortimeyer and four city aldermen.

Each officer is seeking at least $75,000 in monetary damages, according to court records.
