Civil Action: Wrongful Termination

Action taken by the Trial Court: The district court affirmed the decision of the City of Lincoln Personnel Board to uphold the termination of Graham's employment with the Lincoln Police Department.

Assignments of Error and Issues on Appeal: Did the district court err when it found that the Board applied the correct standard of review? Did the district court err when it determined that the Board considered and weighed the evidence presented at the Board hearing? Did the district court err when it found that Lincoln Chief of Police James Peschong acted reasonably and that termination of Graham's employment was not arbitrary or capricious? Did the district court err in failing to conclude that termination of Graham's employment was excessive?
