Former Henderson Police Chief Patrick Moers has filed a lawsuit against Mayor Debra March and other city leaders, alleging they solicited false sexual misconduct claims against him.
The lawsuit was filed last week in Clark County District Court and details Moers’ tense relationship with city leadership.
Moers left the Henderson Police Department in May 2017 after signing a separation agreement.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the city concealed the reason for his departure and allowed him to cash out more than $163,000 of unused paid time off.
In the suit, Moers claims he was repeatedly threatened with termination and injury to his reputation by March and her administrators after he refused to cover up misconduct in the Henderson Police Department to protect March’s mayoral campaign.
March issued a statement saying she was “disappointed and saddened” by the lawsuit.
