Fired undersheriff suing Meagher County

A Former undersheriff has filed a lawsuit against Meagher County. David Wendt alleges the sheriff illegally fired him last year, after he proposed legislation to stop law enforcement and other public officials in Montana from owning or working in bars, because it poses a conflict-of-interest, according to reports from the Billings Gazette. Though the bill failed in committee, the complaint alleges Wendt was terminated for his work on the legislation.
