Fired town clerk sues White Castle mayor, council
PLAQUEMINE- The former town clerk in White Castle filed a scathing lawsuit today in the Iberville Parish Courthouse against Mayor Jermarr Williams and the entire Town Council.
Adler claims her rights were violated when she was fired. The WBRZ Investigative Unit showed you last month that the mayor initially did not follow the law when he let her go. Adler was a town employee for nearly 24 years. The mayor also fired her mother, who was a long time janitor for the Town.
Adler's lawsuit claims the following:
1. The mayor and council violated the open meetings law by holding a secret meeting before Adler was terminated.
2. Adler worked with auditors after an employee received pay for work that was not performed.
3. Adler was fired for not supporting Mayor Williams during the election.
4. Town violated its own procedures and policies for meetings, by not having it on the third Monday of the month.
Mayor Jermarr Williams told Chief Investigator Chris Nakamoto he didn't violate any laws. He also said he had "no comment" on the lawsuit.
