Fired Department Head Lawsuit Can Continue

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

A fired Augusta department head will still have his day in court.

Former Augusta Recreation, PArks, and Facilities director Tom Beck sued the city and City Administrator Fred Russell after he was fired last year for time card fraud. 

The city went to Federal Court to get the case thrown out, but in a ruling Friday, the Federal Court said, though Beck can't sue Russell individually for losing his job, the case against the city still stands.

Beck's lawyer, Mike Brown, says he's happy with the court's decision. Beck is seeking damages and to get his job back with the city.
