Wrongly fired official for Lorain County awarded more money Courts

Aug 23, 2017 - Plain Dealer (Cleveland, Ohio)

A federal appeals court has increased a judgment obtained by the former Lorain County coroner and General Health District health director, after a jury found that he was wrongly fired and endured retaliation.

A jury in May 2016 originally awarded Paul Matus $1.36 million — $1 million of which was for his retaliation claim.

Matus said he was fired from the health district because of a false sexual harassment claim that was investigated and ultimately led to his termination.
