Fired Corman Park police officer loses court battle
A former police officer for the Rural Municipality of Corman Park, who sued officials alleging wrongful dismissal, has had her lawsuit thrown out of court.
Claudia Bryden was with the Corman Park Police Service but was put on leave and then fired after battling her chief.
The dispute has been going on for a decade and Bryden was trying to sue the board of police commissioners for the RM.
However, a court recently ruled that lawsuit could not proceed.
There was no immediate word on whether Bryden plans to appeal.
Bryden's problems go back to 2002 when she claims the chief of police at the time told her to destroy evidence from a murder investigation.
After she complained about that, she alleges the chief began to mistreat her.
More complaints were lodged by Bryden and, in 2006, she was placed on administrative leave.
In 2010 she was fired. Her lawsuit was launched earlier this year.
