Trial date set in bullying, wrongful dismissal case from city hall
Former administrative assistant to mayor claims chief of staff bullied, stalked her
Mayor Brian Bigger's former administrative assistant is going to trial against the city of Greater Sudbury.
Alicia Lachance is seeking $300,000, claiming wrongful dismissal and aggravated and punitive damages.
The civil lawsuit claims Bigger's chief of staff, Melissa Zanette, bullied and stalked Lachance.
The city refutes the claims, calling Lachance a poor worker with a hostile attitude.
A five-day trial has been scheduled for May 2018.
