ESTANCIA, N.M. (KRQE) Imagine being pulled over by a cop and instead of giving you a ticket, he gives you a pink slip.
A former assistant librarian in Estancia claims in a newly-filed whistleblower lawsuit that is exactly what happened to her.
Jamie Kurz was fired last October a few months after she says she caught her boss and another town employee having sex on the floor of the children’s section.
Kurz says after she reported the incident she was harassed and then finally pulled over by the cop and told she had been fired.
In addition to other claims, the lawsuit charges that using the cop for a non-police activity was illegal and an attempt to intimidate.
