Wrongful Termination Against Officer

The Huntington City Council fired the town’s sole police officer, Ryan Stephens for insubordination. Stephens had worked for the 688-population city for four to five years. The city has received several complaints from residents about Stephens which Stephens claims he was not aware of. Stephens’ attorney is asking that he be reinstated immediately and if not he will consider a wrongful termination lawsuit. He said his clients’ position is that Stephens was fired in retaliation after asking to have placed on the City Council agenda a request that police equipment in the mayor’s personal possession — badges, firearms, radios and uniforms from previous officers — be returned to the possession of the Police Department.
