BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - The former director of the Anaconda-Deer Lodge County Public Health Department has filed a federal lawsuit against the county contending wrongful discharge.

The Montana Standard reports (https://bit.ly/1gFGG5J) in a story on Thursday that Lynn Orr contends she’s been deprived of her constitutional rights and is asking for her job back, lost wages, emotional stress damages and lawyer fees.

Orr says in court documents that Anaconda-Deer Lodge Chief Executive Connie Ternes-Daniels and the commission didn’t have a cause to end her employment and the firing was “arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable.”

Daniels declined to comment.

Court documents say Orr worked at the county from May until her firing in December.

Orr says the county failed to follow its own policies when it didn’t perform an evaluation of her work.
