Former Campbell County, Wyoming Library Director Terri Lesley Files Workplace Discrimination Complaint, Defamation Lawsuit
From the Gillette News Record:
Two months after she was fired and nearly two years after a criminal complaint was filed against her, former library director Terri Lesley is taking legal action.
This week, Lesley filed a charge of discrimination against the Campbell County Commission and the Campbell County Public Library Board, alleging that her employers discriminated and retaliated against her because of her support of the LGBTQ community, according to documents filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Lesley is also suing Gillette residents Hugh and Susan Bennett, as well as their son Kevin, for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, civil conspiracy and conspiracy to deprive Lesley of her constitutional rights, according U.S. District Court documents.
