GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Newly released documents show a former Green Bay police officer wants the city to pay him $1.3 million for disclosing his personnel records.

R. Casey Masiak, of Bellevue, says the release of the records last spring caused him embarrassment, monetary losses and emotional damage and violated a confidentiality agreement.

The city denied the claim in June, but USA Today Network-Wisconsin obtained it Monday in an open records request. The agreement says police officials accepted Masiak’s resignation and agreed to clear his personnel file of evidence that he was accused of harassing fellow officers. The city released the records to the news organization in April.

Masiak’s claim says that has ruined his reputation and destroyed his career prospects. Masiak’s attorney says he’s talking to his client about their next move.
