A man who was refused employment with the city of LaFollette in August is now suing it.
Last Thursday, Brian M. Tiller filed the $100,000 lawsuit claiming he was not hired as police officer because he is handicapped.
The suit, filed in circuit court, says Tiller had previously worked for the city as a police officer. At the time he applied to rejoin the force, he was still qualified to work in that capacity. But city officials denied him employment because of his disability, he alleges.
