Police Officers Claims Against City Dismissed before Discovery

Katie Weaver Hartzog and Dan Hartzog obtained a Rule 12(b)(6) dismissal of a police officer’s claims that she was constructively discharged based on her refusal to “cover up” an allegedly shoddy criminal investigation regarding the drowning death of a fellow officer’s husband in their swimming pool. Plaintiff’s claims included civil conspiracy, constructive wrongful discharge, and negligent infliction of emotional distress, all of which were dismissed before discovery was conducted.
