Handverger Lawsuit Sent to Lower Court

Winooski, Vermont - June 4, 2009

A federal judge is sending a lawsuit against the city of Winooski by former manager Joshua Handverger back to state court.

Handverger sued his former employer last Fall, claiming he was improperly fired and that the city violated his civil rights and Vermont's Fair Employment Practices Act.

He is asking for reinstatement and back pay.

U.S. District Court Judge Garvan Murtha says most of the issues in the suit relate to state law.
