ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - A former Louisiana College vice president filed a lawsuit against the school and its president, Joe Aguillard, claiming he was improperly fired in the wake of filing a whistle-blower complaint against Aguillard.

The Town Talk reports (http://townta.lk/1oLFEEi ) Timothy Johnson, executive vice president at Louisiana College until July 31, named Aguillard and the private Baptist school in Pineville as defendants in a petition for unspecified damages.

The lawsuit was filed in 9th Judicial District Court in Alexandria.

Johnson’s lawsuit states that that his contract was not renewed when it expired July 31, 2013, in retaliation for a whistle-blower complaint Johnson filed against Aguillard in December 2012.

Board of Trustees Chairman Tommy French said he did not wish to comment on the lawsuit.
