BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - The Bozeman Health Board of Trustees has filed a lawsuit against the search firm they used to find the hospital’s former president and CEO, saying the search company failed to find felony theft convictions on his record.

The board fired Kevin Pitzer earlier this year due to his felony conviction in 1983. Pitzer was convicted of three felony counts of theft for embezzling about $100,000 from an Iowa residential and day-care facility for the disabled where he was a bookkeeper and administrative assistant.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1LVBv09 ) that in the lawsuit Wednesday Bozeman Health claims breach of contract and negligence against Gallaher MSA Search, a company based in Kansas City, Missouri.

Officials say if they had known about Pitzer’s past it would have swayed them from hiring him.
