Shepard v. Wapello County, Iowa.

U.S. District Court

BUDGET

OVERTIME

Shepard v. Wapello County, Iowa, 250 F.Supp.2d 1112 (S.D.Iowa, 2003). A former county corrections officer sued a county and a sheriff, alleging wrongful termination as the result of his complaints of illegal conduct by a fellow officer, and of fiscal mismanagement in connection with the denial of overtime pay. The district court denied summary judgment for the defendants. The court held that summary judgment was precluded by fact issues as to whether the termination violated state public policy, violated a state whistleblower statute, and was retaliation for assertion of his First Amendment rights.
