CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — A $1.5 million federal lawsuit against Chattanooga in which a former police officer claims he was wrongfully fired for having post-traumatic stress disorder went to trial Monday.
Plaintiff Mickel Hoback, an officer with the city from 2000 until 2009, testified late in the day in U.S. District Court. City Attorney Crystal Freiberg will continue cross-examining him this morning.
