A lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court by Deputy Katharina Harper claims her firing was in retaliation for her reporting lewd sexual acts between jailers. Although Sheriff Law wrote that her termination was due to unreported ADHD, Harper’s Austin lawyers, Jeff Meyerson and Mark McLean, said that it was well known and never affected her job performance. Two days after reporting an incident between the jailers, she was written up. The lawsuit alleges violations of several laws including the Texas Whistleblower Act, violations of Title VII, and violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. See news article.
