ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - An owner of a food truck business that stirred controversy because of its name claims in a lawsuit she was fired by New York state on trumped-up charges related to the flap.

Brandon Snooks and Andrea Loguidice filed a lawsuit last year claiming their truck was unfairly booted from Saratoga Race Course. Track officials said they acted because the name includes a slur on people of Italian or Spanish descent.

Local media report that Loguidice filed a separate lawsuit in federal court this week claiming she was fired as a lawyer for the Department of Environmental Conservation on manufactured charges a month after a superior warned her against taking a more active role in the business, and reminded her that Gov. Andrew Cuomo had denounced the truck’s name.

The agency says it acted appropriately and is reviewing the lawsuit.
