Ex-police officer sues Burbank, alleging wrongful termination

Alene Tcheckmedyian (Los Angeles Times) | March 10, 2013

A former Burbank police officer has filed a federal lawsuit against the city alleging that he was wrongfully terminated in retaliation for suing the city four years ago.

The lawsuit was filed last week in U.S. District Court by Elfego Rodriguez, who was one of five officers who sued the city alleging racial discrimination and harassment in 2009. Rodriguez was ultimately dropped from the joint lawsuit by a judge.

To date, lawsuits filed by former and current police officers that center on discrimination and wrongful termination have cost the city more than $7.1 million in legal fees.

Rodriguez is one of the 10 Burbank officers fired in 2010 for allegedly engaging in misconduct and using excessive force when handling the 2007 Porto’s robbery investigation. He has repeatedly denied the allegations.
