A longtime director of Shelby County E-911 filed suit Friday in Shelby Circuit Court for wrongful termination.

Cayla Hackworth, E-911 director from 2001 until March 28, 2012, claims in her suit that she was unfairly fired from her position because her employer claims she did not attend to her duties properly while she was on medical leave.

The suit names as defendants Shelby County Fiscal Court, County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger, the county’s seven magistrates, the E-911 Board and its chairman, Rusty Newton.
