LAWSUIT FILED: Hedlund Wrongful Termination Claim
A lawsuit has been filed against the state by a fired Division of Criminal Investigation agent. The wrongful termination lawsuit names the state, DPS Commissioner Brian London, DCI Director Chari Paulson, and assistant DCI director Gerard Meyers as defendants. Former DCI Special Agent Larry Hedlund filed the lawsuit following his termination in July. He claims he was fired in retaliation for complaints he made in connection to a case involving Gov. Terry Branstad’s SUV.
