Fired Minot attorney files whistleblower complaint

MINOT, N.D. (AP) -- Minot's fired city attorney has filed a whistleblower complaint, alleging she was dismissed for refusing orders that she believed broke the law.

Colleen Auer was fired May 2 after only about a month on the job for alleged insubordination. She already has filed grievances with state and federal agencies saying she was harassed and wrongfully terminated, and seeking to be reinstated.

Auer has now filed the whistleblower complaint with the state Labor Department, saying she was asked to do unlawful things regarding contracts and documents and was fired and publicly humiliated when she refused.

The City Council has concluded that Auer's allegations of harassment by the city manager were unfounded. The city is not commenting on pending complaints because of the possibility of litigation.
