A hearing is set for Mar. 4 in the Claiborne Parish Courthouse.
In his lawsuit, Mills said he can't be fired as police chief because he was re-elected in 2010 as Town Marshal, and the town's charters states the Town Marshal shall serve as Chief of Police.
Chief Mills also claims
the Homer Town Council violated the open meetings law when it voted to
dismantle the police department. Chief Mills is also seeking a permanent
injunction on abolishing the police department and reverting his position
solely to Town Marshal. He also wants the mayor to pay him his full salary as
police chief, and he wants the town to pay for his legal fees.
