Wrongful firing suit ongoing

TAHLEQUAH — One year after a wrongful termination complaint was filed against the Cherokee Nation tribal officials by Geary Don Crofford, Teresia Knott and Louie Jackson, the case remains stalemated in the tribe’s district court.

According to online court documents, the latest motion filed was dated Dec. 9, 2013, with the defendants objecting to Cherokee Nation’s cross-motion for summary judgement.

In the original complaint, Crofford, Knott and Jackson filed for reinstatement of employment and damages, claiming they were denied pre-termination due process.
