Lawyers argue case of Fla. transit chief firing

Posted on April 15, 2014

LAKELAND, Fla. — The Ledger reported that an attorney for Danny Ours, former executive director of Lakeland Area Mass Transit District, claimed that board members of the transit system didn’t ask additional questions or meet with the lawyer hired to investigate complaints about Ours after an internal investigation that led to his dismissal.

However, a lawyer for the transit system said there was "turmoil, chaos and low morale" under Ours' leadership at the agency, according to the paper.

Ours filed the lawsuit against the transit agency for breach of contract in May 2011 after he was fired two months earlier. He claimed that the agency owes him wages and benefits because of an employment agreement. For the full story, click here.
