3 Former State Workers Sue Alaska Governor for Alleged Wrongful Termination
By Becky Bohrer
Three former state employees are suing Gov. Mike Dunleavy and his chief of staff, alleging wrongful termination when Dunleavy took office.
The Alaska Civil Liberties Union of Alaska has filed a lawsuit on behalf of former state attorney Elizabeth Bakalar and one on behalf of psychiatrists Anthony Blanford and John Bellville.
After Dunleavy's election, chief of staff Tuckerman Babcock asked at-will state employees to submit their resignations. In a statement, Babcock said it was appropriate to ask if they wanted to work for the administration.
